“Very Informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

The demise of Stamford Museum was a dreadful decision by the Local Authority, but full marks to the team at Stamford Library for their effort in assembling a very informative and interesting history of the town. Well worth a visit - or more than one if you're a regular visitor to Stamford.

“Stamford History Loss”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

Finding out about Stamford's wonderful buildings and history is more difficult than it should be - and more difficult than many other towns.

Information boards are lacking or in poor condition.

Some reasonable books in the library to browse. I had planned to visit the Stamford Museum and was very disappointed to find that it had been closed!! The museum building is now empty - to save money I was told.

There is a Heritage Room at the library which I imagine is supposed to replace the museum on the cheap. Not very well done, very small - it certainly doesn't do justice to the town's history.

Hard to understand a town like Stamford which wants to encourage tourism should close its museum! There is however an excellent Museum at Peterborough which is well worth visiting.
