  • Very interesting museum set over 5 floors. There's a viewing platform which looks out over the harbour, history of Whitehaven and a floor dedicated to the history of Sellafield. There is also a cafe.
  • Looking for something to do on a rainy day in West Cumbria? Look no further than the Beacon Museum, easy to spend a few hours here. Great afternoon. Wonderful views of the harbour from the top floor, many years of local history on the third floor, second floor devoted to Sellafield and nuclear energy. Also has a shop and cafe. Many thanks to Magda, most helpful and welcoming.
