CAMPBELL BLUEBIRD EXHIBITION

In addition to tracing over 100 years of motoring heritage with ample tangible evidence, the museum pays tribute to father and son, Sir Malcolm and Donald Campbell who between them captured 21 world land and water speed records in the Bluebird series of cars and boats. Donald Campbell was tragically killed on nearby Coniston Water in January 1967, whilst attempting to break his own water speed record.

Highlights include full size detailed replica’s of the 1935 Bluebird car, the 1939 boat, Bluebird K4, and the famous 1967 jet hydroplane, Bluebird K7.
