“Varied and fascinating museum”

Wisbech & Fenland Museum

Local history from prehistoric through Roman to modern. Included an excellent cabinet about Thomas Clarkson, an anti-slave trade campaigner. Also a collection of coins that at first sight looked like nothing much, but had labels and notes that traced through almost every monarch in two millennia of British history.

I really enjoyed my visit. It contains so much information about the area. The display cabinets are those lovely wooden Victorian ones. There is a small art gallery as well. It's an informative way to spend a morning and has some interesting artefacts and displays.

It was a lot bigger than expected, lots of unexpected items. There is even an area for art display. Displays from local treasures and from across the world. Definitely worth a visit!

Wisbech and Fenland Museum in the heart of Georgian Wisbech is a real gem, an original Victorian Museum with a huge range of fascinating artefacts including the original manuscript of Dickens' Great Expectations. The Hudson Room stages a wide range of exhibitions throughout the year.

The museum is itself a museum piece and the range of exhibits is staggering. From original Charles Dickens manuscript to local history and amazing odds and ends.
