Very interesting exhibits and history of Oakham, mostly of rural interest, which you would expect, being in Rutland. Very good display of quilts when we were there. And there is no entrance fee.

We visited the Rutland Country Museum during our stay and enjoyed around an hour wandering around the exhibits and looking at all the old farm machinery, and items from times long since past. Highly recommended.
