The Museum

Towcester Museum

The Towcester Museum Trust is a registered charity founded in 2003 and dedicated to providing a quality museum and visitor centre for Towcester.

Located in the courtyard of a former Georgian coaching inn in the heart of historic Towcester, the museum provides a centre for tourism and historical information for the district and a much needed focal point for the exhibition, display and interpretation of the history of the Towcester district.

This heritage project comprises:

  • A series of modern museum galleries
  • A tourist information and visitor centre
  • A venue for temporary exhibitions
  • A  museum shop
  • An educational and research facility
  • A facility for preserving local historic archives & artefacts

The Towcester Museum Project provides an important amenity and heritage asset that greatly enhances commercial and community activity within the town.
