Lindisfarne Heritage Centre, United Kingdom

Excellent small museum tracing the island history with exhibits on the Vikings, the ancient Christian monks, the fishing industry and birding. There is a facsimile of the Lindisfarne Gospels and an interactive exhibit that lets you look through the Lindisfarne Gospels on a computer. (The actual Lindisfarne Gospel is in the British Museum if you want to see the original.) This was an interactive display where you could make a rubbing using Lindisfarne designs.
