  • Small museum with fascinating local history. Including the fens excavation, ice age artifacts and they do special events during school holidays. Free to enter and located in the city centre.
  • What a hidden gem - three floors of interesting discoveries. My grandson really enjoyed it - particularly the Roman history
  • Three floors of local artefacts.. the collection of Napoleonic prisoners art work is superb.... regular visiting art exhibitions and local artists too show in downstairs gallery.... Cafe and toilets... all good
  • Interesting histories of Peterborough and the local area. Diverse exhibits and lots of interactive stuff for younger people
  • Watch out for the ghosts! Great in the day but better at night when they have a ghost walk. Lots to see and a good way to spend a rainy afternoon.
