A fascinating trip through the history of Wellingborough - from Waendel, through the Great Fire, to displays of local pub and brewing history, and a rather splendid model of Wellingborough Station. Free to enter, and a great resource if you're interested in local history.

Proper local museum - history of the area brought to life with collections of objects, pictures and photos. Easy to park near and free - what's not to like

What a little museum this is. Plenty for all to see. There's also film shows and children's entertainment through the holidays.

Yes, there are no steps into the museum and there is a lift to get to the first floor. We have a wheelchair for customer use. Disabled parking is outside our main door.
