Before your date:
Check their websites and local listings for discounts and free admission days.
Discuss your options and make a plan that sounds like fun for both of you.
On your date:
Wear comfortable shoes, this is not a time for heels or dress shoes!
Consider following a tour guide. Knowing the backstories for certain pieces can really increase the intrigue of your experience.
For Cumbria dating, note that some museums are very particular about not touching anything, while others are interactive. Make sure you know which type of exhibit you're visiting.
4 Night At The Museum Date Ideas in Cumbria
The Beacon Museum
It doesn't really matter what shift you work, Cumbria singles will find time to visit this “open 24 hours a day” museum! The Beacon, which was completely refurbished in 2007, illustrates the history and development of the Copeland Region with maps, pictures, artifacts, and other relevant material. They offer an interactive experience. You can use the powerful telescopes in the Viewing Gallery, present your own weather forecast in the Weather Zone, or explore the lighthouse style building using interactive touchscreens, sounds, sights and smells. Also, you can dig up your very own artifact or jump aboard the Maria Lowther Ship. There is a gift shop and a harbor-side restaurant as well.
Museums At Night Festival
Dating in Cumbria is so amazing with this event going on this very week! Wednesday 16 to Saturday 19 May 2018. Museums At Night is a UK-wide festival in museums, galleries, historic houses, libraries and archives, produced by Culture24, the Brighton-based arts charity dedicated to shining a light on Britain’s sparkling culture and heritage. Some can be enjoyed anywhere in the UK on any night of the year. As a part of this: Abbot Hall Art Gallery is offering Paint Night on 17 May and Dove Cottage & The Wordsworth Museum has special events on 18 May.
Birdoswald Roman Fort – Hadrian's Wall
Open 10 am to 6 pm, with last admission thirty minutes before closing time, Birdoswald Roman Fort and Hadrian's Wall have well-preserved remains like forts, walls, settlements, roads, building works, and burial sites which contain almost 2,000 years of history that tell us about the Romans and those who came after. Birdoswald Roman Fort is set on a spectacular ridge above the river Irthing, offering fabulous views down into the gorge below. To the east are the crags of the Whin Sill, where the remains of Hadrian’s Wall can be seen tracing the contours of the dramatic landscape.
Cumbria's Museum of Military Life
Covering over 300 years of military history, Cumbria's Museum of Military Life tells the stories of the 34th Regiment of foot, the 55th Regiment of foot, Border Regiment,King’s Own Royal Border Regiment and even the current serving Regiment The Duke of Lancaster’s.
