Housed in the former White House Inn, this warm-hearted museum was founded in 1936 and has recently been renovated. Fun and interactive, the museum displays the everyday life of Cambridgeshire people. Our unique collection is displayed over three floors of this historic timber-framed building. The museum has full wheelchair access and a lift to all floors. Additionally, we have a very popular shop, retailing a variety of gifts, novelties and traditional toys.
