“A little disappointed”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

A little disappointed. Wasn't as interesting as it is made out to be. Overly priced too. Perhaps it was just not for me however would recommend otherwise.

“Ghostly goings on.”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Have been several times since it has had a makeover. The children love it and I have to say the museum is a most enjoyable place to spend a couple of hours. The cafe is pleasant.

Have also attended an evening ghost tour of the museum which was fantastic. Stuart, the guide was marvellous and very informative and entertaining.

A wonderful museum that should be used by more people in the city.

“Great for kids”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

I usually go to the museum every couple of months as the art gallery and temporary exhibitions change on a regular basis. The museum has undergone a complete revamp with interactive sections for children (and not forgetting the big children). The sections of the museum cover dinosaurs, wildlife,early people settling in Peterborough, a great section on Normans Cross the Napoleonic prisoner of war camp, the story of the museum building, a Victorian operating theatre and the industrial history of the city.
The museum shop is reasonably priced as well as the coffee shop.
The museum also runs ghost walks and ghost 'hunts' inside the museum building tickets can be bought from the museum shop.
