A really good local museum Wisbech & Fenland Museum is one of the oldest museums in the United Kingdom.
The collections were initiated by the town's Literary and Museum Societies which were formed in 1781 and 1835 respectively. The Museum opened in 1847, the collections have continued to grow, but the essence of the Museum remains virtually unchanged. Some displays were updated a few years ago whilst others are in the original display cabinets. There is a large exhibition hall to the rear of the building.

and runs from Sat 15 Feb - Sat 26 Apr 2014
