  • The interior of the Museum is full of very interesting visual and written facts about the town and the surrounding areas. From the ground floor to the 3rd flood the wide staircase takes you to so much of interest. If in the area treat your whole family to a fabulous and informative experience. Gifts and a tea room adds to this vast building to enjoy. Give it a go. You won't be disappointed.
  • A favourite with our grandchildren who make a beeline for the gift-shop to spend their pocket money on pretty stones or Roman helmets. They love the Nature section - sad to see the large tortoiseshell butterfly which is longer to be found in our gardens. Prisoners' artefacts crafted from bones; dinosaur bones; 1940s kitchenette with mincer and zinc bath - so much to see. Then a relaxing cuppa and cake in the cosy cafe - remembering to use our Vivacity card for a 10% discount.
  • A shockingly great museum. The range of exhibits and interactive learning experiences are really great for both young and old. This is a must see when visiting Peterborough.
  • My children love exploring the museum. The staff are always friendly. Some of the exhibits need a little TLC but overall a great place to hang out and learn with my small kids.
  • Great place - free entry - we had great fun with the Summer exhibition in the art gallery and the museum had lots of interactive things suitable for young children
