Daventry museum is an accredited museum in the centre of Daventry, providing a friendly and welcoming space for people to share stories and learn about Daventry's rich past.

Permanent displays feature the town's ancient charters, weights and measures, mayoral regalia, Roman mosaic floor fragment as well as artefacts relating to the BBC's history on Borough Hill.

Alongside permanent displays, visitors will be able to see temporary exhibitions throughout the year. See below for more details.

The museum is family friendly and children can interact with museum objects in the 'Explorer Corner' and do fun activities such as colouring in, object hunts and quizzes.

Daventry Museum is a fascinating social history museum with regularly changing exhibitions and programme of events.

Supported by a team of invaluable volunteers and funded by Daventry Town Council, this cultural hub is where people meet to share stories and learn about Daventry's rich history whilst also shaping the continuing history of the town.
