Great local museum. Not over-curated or over-designed as so many museums are. Thanks to Steve for the interesting information delivered with genuine passion. Topics include Mary Queen of Scots, Workington Hall, Curwen family, local Rugby League and Football, mining, industry, social history. Relies on donations so do give generously! Loved the "Onion" (Symphonion), only one four thought to still be in existence.

Went in on a passing visit on the way home, staff were welcoming and pleasant. The tour guide knew the answer to every question he was asked, even thought me new facts about my town where the museum is located (Workington). An interesting place to visit especially for local people.

There's lots of artifacts and information on them

Also great place for a venue of any sort, decor on tables and around the venue room is great (seen the pre set up room for the next day)

Admissions free but I donated £5 as I see it as a town treasure

Lovely well set out Museum with lots of interesting local history. Nice guide pointed out lots of interesting items and showed us round the rooms. After our look around the Museum we had tea and a sandwich/soup which was served by lovely lady volunteer. Definitely will be back for another visit

Held my fathers funeral tea here and I have to say that the location, function room and food was excellent. At the worst time for our family Trish and the team could not have been more helpful and supportive. The room was presented beautifully and food was amazing and we could have had anything we liked off their menu. Guests were very well looked after and the hot and cold buffet scrumptious. Highly recommend for any function. A number of the guests also had a look round the museum as they had never visited Workington before and found it really interesting. Thanks so much to all the staff at Helena Thompson, lovely job in difficult circumstances.

My grandson loves History, we've been going for weeks but finally got today. We went to see the Harrington room as my son made something for it. We were shown round by Mr Jones he was brilliant with my grandson. Jacob loves the story of Mary Queen of Scots, we went last time to an exabition. He can't wait to go again. Thanks so much for the tour.

Just what a local museum should be, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, voluntary staff. Slightly untidy, but, amazingly comprehensive cover of the history of what I always regarded as a 'depressed' area. Spent almost the whole afternoon and will have to go back to explore the rest.

What a wonderful find!
The Helena Thompson`museum was gifted to the town by a lady who was ahead of her times. It contains many local treasures and the man who showed us round was interesting, knowledgeable and passionate about Workington. We had previously visited the ruins of Workington Hall, ancestral home of the Curwen family, which is opposite the museum. So we were interested to find a scale model and many information boards about its building and the family's history. The Luck of Workington, a cup given to the family by Mary Queen of Scots, is displayed well. Every facet of Workington's history is displayed...Percy Kelly the artist, The story of the Steel Works and the Bessemer Converter, costumes, furniture, paintings, ship building, local industries...all most interesting!
Our guide brought the house alive and we intend to return in the near future!
There is the opportunity to have a hot drink and the museum has a diary of special events which involve afternoon tea. They also cater for weddings and special birthdays.

Travelling back and forth through Workington we kept seeing the sign for this museum. Never having heard of Helena Thompson, we were intrigued and decided to visit.
It turned out to be one of the highlights of our two week holiday in the Northern Lakes.
This is more than just a local history museum (albeit an excellent example of one) but more a journey through the rise and demise of this once vibrant and important industrial town and region. The surprise of the visit was undoubtedly the history of the Curwen family and Workington Hall (the ruins are just across the road).
The thing that makes a visit so memorable though is without doubt the volunteers who are so knowledgable and so willing to explain and expand on the exhibits.
Couldn't recommend more highly.

I went to see Christopher Robin and I loved it! The staff were very friendly and am going again to have afternoon tea with my mum on Sunday and I’m sure it’ll be lovely 😊
