  • Small, but interesting museum of live in Rutland over the last few hundred years. Friendly place. Runs an independent film first Thursday of each month.
  • Surprisingly large, comprehensive and interesting. We were here a long time as there was so much to see.
  • A lovely place to visit the staff really lovely well worth a visit old farming machinery etc
  • Great little Gem, staff where so accommodating to our kids and made history fun for all of them (aged 2-8). The library is currently cohabiting with the museum and that's pretty cool to be honest
  • Not much to see mainly due to the tempory relocation of library
