Oundle’s Museum

Oundle Museum is an award winning Accredited Museum located in the town’s old Courthouse building. It is free to enter and is open betweeen March and October on Saturdays, Sundays Bank Holidays and selected week days during August.

The Museum is run entirely by volunteers, with displays about Oundle’s history from the prehistoric period to the modern day. The museum has much to offer including many exhibits from the Roman, Saxon and Medieval periods in the permanent display gallery. Here also you can take a virtual journey by train in the 1950s.

Next to the permanent display gallery there is an exhibition room which displays a new theme each year, so there is always something new to see.
