  • Fabulous free museum in Oakham. Plenty of nostalgia- mainly local farming stuff, but plenty besides, and ideal when visiting Rutland Water but wanting to get out of the rain for a bit.  more »
  • It really shows the rural history of Rutland and just now also houses the library. Is there a better laid out county library? Very knowledgable and helpful people too.  more »
  • Lot of old agricultural equipment, tractors and other machinery. Old gallows too. Small cafe where food looked reasonable. Recommended  more »

  • 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
  • Very interesting and informative.
  • Good local museum with strong collection of 19th & 20th century farm implements
  • Interesting place to visit with examples of machinery and vehicles
