Very disappointed, I am not the museum type but I do like to look and read about the history of things but this is just disappointing.

it is well worth a visit to Kendal museum, it has a unique display of wildlife apart from the history of Kendal and the surrounding area. The staff on duty were very helpful and pleasant and it is an experience we will repeat.
