Visited this museum on a Saturday afternoon in January. The museum was busy with families the children were enjoying a quiz to find things around the rooms.
The information shown throughout the museum is well explained.
Worth a visit and it’s free!

Been once again with grandchild during half term. Great place to go with children during school holidays, they always have things to do an find. Most of it free, sometimes there is one activity making something really nice with a very small charge to take home. Highly recommend this for an enjoyable time with the children

Gem of a museum. There's shop displays for a pie maker, a Stilton cheese maker and a chemist. The History of Melton Mowbray is covered with very useful information boards. And several screens with old photographs accompanied by more info. Very nicely done, the funding they received for their renovation has been well spent. I will definitely revisit as I didn't get round all the screens and exhibits.

Interesting visit to a small local museum. Free to enter. There seemed a lot of things for kids to do and hopefully learn something along the way. Lots of local history items old shops and historic events and the famous 'two headed calf'.

As a smalll town museum it has a lot to offer and gives a good introduction to Melton Mowbray and it's heritage.

There is a range of artefacts that are related to the area and these date from pre-Roman to relatively modern times.

You can park outside for an hour which is probably long enough.

Well worth a vist if you're nearby.

Enjoyed our time visiting Melton Mowbray's museum. We started off by doing the Melton Mowbray Heritage Trail around the town and then went into the museum. It was busy and packed full of items that brought back many memories. A nice little museum to wander round and while an hour or two.

Great little local museum with some really interesting exhibits of old Melton and surrounding villages. Brilliant for children in the holidays with loads of activities for them to take part in. Excellent toilets if the need arrises.
