Our Galleries

From Mansion to Museum

Discover the changing faces of Peterborough Museum and the city in which it sits as you explore millions of years of Peterborough’s history, from Jurassic Seas and Roman fortresses, to the advent of the railways and modern industry.

The Vaults

Take part in a Vaults tour and venture down into the Museum’s cellars. Explore layers of history, rarely seen by the public and hear the stories of the people who once lived and worked within the building.

Could you track down a fleeing king, make away with the local magistrates treasure or escape before you become buried alive! Take part in one of three themed escape rooms, brought to you by Escape Peterborough.
