Peterborough Museum holds a wide ranging collection amassed over 130 years. Many objects have national and international importance, such as the Jurassic marine reptiles, and finds from Prehistoric and Roman Peterborough.
Some objects have remarkable stories behind them, for example the Napoleonic craftwork made by prisoners of war at Norman Cross. You can also find out about Peterborough’s development and the daily life of Peterborough's people, both past and present, through the Social History collection.
