Jerwood Centre
11.30am - 12.00pm

The Jerwood Centre is our purpose-built archive and research centre, next door to the Museum. It holds over 65,000 items: manuscripts and letters by the Wordsworths, thousands of rare books, hundreds of paintings of the Lake District, dozens of fascinating household items and even a working antique printing press.  Take a behind-the-scenes tour with one of our curators to see some of these incredible artefacts and find out about the day-to-day work that goes into caring for such a varied collection.
