The displays upstairs change regularly and are always very informative and of local interest. As the museum is not too biug it is good for children as well as adults and there are interesting activities for the children. My granbdchild loves going there.

This small museum has an interesting collection of items connected to the locality and history of Kettering, including the shoemaking industry, and photos from the past. There was a special exhibition on the Witches of Northampton which I found slightly disappointing since it mostly referred to other counties.

This museum is well worth a visit, providing a good insight into its social history including the shoe and boot industry of the past, and the setting up of the co-operative society. Two floors of exhibits. Good, clear, explanations of exhibits. Allow 1-2 hours.

Visited here a few times. It is a lovely small museum that shows the history of the town. In addition the museum also has bespoke demonstrations on specific subjects on occasion. Check local advertising for detail.

A lovely museum.
