Good museum packed with interesting info and artefacts. Free admission but donations needed to keep this wonderful place open.

I did not know that Cromwell was born in Huntingdon until we accidentally found this museum and decided to visit it. It's a small museum, but is located in the building where Cromwell's school was, that makes this place even more fascinating. There were a lot of interesting documents, pictures and other things related to Cromwell and his family. You need to see this place. I think a lot of people definitely will find some new information about one of the significant and controversial periods of British history and British democracy.

We had always walked by, but one lunchtime popped in to find many old pieces historians would love. I thought the models were good too. Give it a look, you might be supprised.
