Oakham Museum :: Shared Description

The old Rutland County Museum survived the brief extinguishment of the parent county, and since it was reformed is still a major repository of the local culture.

Most of the exhibits concentrate on the 19th and early 20th century farming economy, because apart from a canal and railway connection the county remained an agricultural economy.

The museum is housed in the former riding school of the Fencible Cavalry, an 19th century volunteer militia group raised by the Earls of Nottingham and Gainsborough.

The museum has its own web site, LinkExternal link and is run by a voluteer group.
