Hi Roy

Good to see a fellow Brit Member here and whilst I cannot help personally with experience in setting up a Museum I do manage the official  'Bluebird Supporters Club' facebook page which has a growing following and could have visitors that might help.

We have Donald Campbell's Nephew Donald Wales as our President and the club represents the Campell family record breaking which continues in cars and boats.
