2. Cumberland Pencil Museum-Home of the World’s First Pencil
Yes, the humble pencil has its very own museum to celebrate its cultural contributions through time. Located in Cumbria, the Cumberland Pencil Museum is home to the world’s largest pencil collection (try to contain your excitement). Home to the planet’s first pencil and the longest color pencil, the museum also features interactive exhibits that allow visitors to test out wooden writing implements and a wide array of pencil designs. It’s a fun place to stop by if you have creative kids with you.
