This museum is small, but full of artifacts, very well laid out and supplied. Entrance is free. Good for families with small to teen children.

It's free and small but well worth a visit. The guide was really helpful and happy to answer questions. I have lived in Huntingdon for most of my life and when back visiting parents I always pop in.

Right in the middle of town, have to find a good place to park. Its a small museum but still very interesting. The curator was extremely knowledgeable. If you have a few minutes and happen to be in Huntingdon, give it a look.

Just off the town center, this museum, with its curator, provides a warm, friendly and helpful welcome. It houses many interesting artefacts plus the only picture postcards to be found in the locality.
