A bit of the beaten track but well worth the effort to visit. Has featured on the BBC "Flog It" program. Life over the past century is very interesting and the tractor collection is second to none. Before you leave, visit the farm shop and treat yourself to freshly picked veg. and fresh meat from the Oakham farm

So glad you enjoyed your visit. Our Farm Shop closed 4 years ago but we do now have a small gift shop. More

Especially for those of us of a certain age this is a great way to pass a couple of hours indulging in unabashed nostalgia. A wonderful collection of artifacts and machinery of astonishing variety.

You feel bad criticising a local family-run attraction that has clearly been a labour of love but there is so much stuff here it just becomes a bit overwhelming; how many pairs of shoelaces do you need to see? We felt that there was a really interesting museum hiding here and what it needs is a big cull of the... More

This place is in a time warp and it's totally intentional. Most of the stuff is pre 1980s so it will be of most interest to the 50+ but there is plenty here for younger "oldies" too. Cheap admission so well worth a couple of hours browse on a rainy afternoon.

Took our friends there who came for the day. We are all in our fifties so it was right up our street!! We loved it there so much to see of every conceivable item from our past and it was fascinating stuff. It brought back so many happy memories and we spent a long time wandering around lost in the...

We visited Oakham Treasures recently and found their exhibits to be very interesting in deed, plus their many & varied displays of locally produced food & drink at very reasonable prices. This place is well worth a visit !!

I've seen countless Faberge Eggs at the Hermitage, sacred Dead Sea Scrolls in Amman and Gorillas in the jungle of Bwindi, but nothing truly compares to the wonders of The Oakham Treasures.

We only live 15 miles from this attraction but had never heard of it until we stumbled across it on the internet. We visited in the October half term but it was not busy, which was great. This attraction will appeal to anyone who loves to reminisce; the museum is absolutely packed with artefacts from the last hundred years or... More
