This was our first visit to the lovely market town of Market Harborough and we booked a visit online through the museum’s website. Because of covid, we had a timed slot and were the only visitors in the space. The artefacts from the Iron Age and Roman periods are wonderful as is the accompanying video which explains how local people discovered the treasure. Also extremely interesting were the social history artefacts and memorabilia which provided a fascinating insight into various periods of human history. A great hour spent here and a special shout out to the staff who were very friendly and knowledgeable.

We'd been to Wetherspoons for lunch and wanted something else to do on a wet day. Museum well laid out; great variety; accessible information. An hour or so well spent. Will return

Not far from the site if the Battle of Naseby, too! The museum encompasses both businesses, discoveries etc and is next to both The Old Grammar School and St Dionysius Church.

Thank you for coming to visit. If you are interested in the Battle of Naseby, there are several battlefield trail boards around the town of Market Harborough, including one in Church Square and at The Symington Building.

We were looking for something to do one morning and wandered in this little museum by the library. It does not have many displays but the treasure they have displayed from the countryside was fascinating. I usually just browse displays at museums but I found myself reading every display relating to the treasure. The Roman helmet is really amazing. There were some intense displays of some English life through the ages in the back and there were a lot of Interesting household wares. It was a little too much to take it all in so I just glanced at those. It was well worth a short visit if you enjoy some history.

We only had a short time to visit but what we saw made us want to go back again. The museum is packed with fascinating items from the iron Age to more recent times.
