Welcome to Rutland County Museum
Rutland County Museum and Visitor Centre is the perfect introduction to England’s smallest county. The museum displays tell the story of the county, and are complemented by exhibits of archaeology, history and rural life.
Admission is FREE!
In addition to our Collections the museum has a varied and interesting programme of Exhibitions and Events, have a look at our Museum newsletter to get a flavour of just how much goes on here.
The Visitor Information Area holds the latest information about other events and activities in the area and you can relax in our Award Winning Garden.
Our current exhibition is 'A Call to Arms - Rutland in the First World War', which profiles the stories of men from the Rutland Detachment of the Leicestershire Yeomanry and those from the Oakham Postal Service. Don't forget that it's also the Festival of British Archaeology.
Can you help Rutland County Museum to commemorate the First World War?
2014 marks 100 years since the commencement of the First World War and, like many organisations across the country, Rutland County Museum is planning to commemorate this anniversary. If you can help us in anyway, we would love to hear from you, see our WWI Centenary Project page for futher information.
The Museum is supported in its work by The Friends of Rutland County Museum and Oakham Castle . The Friends have assisted in the purchase of items for the Museum and offer a regular programme of lectures and social events.
