Our tea-room will be open , with chairs and tables being available in the Courtyard and tea room for you to sit and relax.
What are we?
We are an independent museum in Huntingdonshire situated in open
countryside on the edge of a small Fenland town. Housed in renovated 17th century farm buildings, the museum is full of items and exhibits kindly donated by local companies and the public.
Ramsey Rural Museum is a charitable incorporated organisation that is managed and maintained entirely by volunteers.
What will you find here?
On site there are many areas showing a variety of machinery, implements
and vehicles spanning 200 years of rural life.
A history of the drainage of the Fens can be found in the Pump Room along with tools used for hedging, ditching and turfing.
There is so much to look at in the Trades Room. As the name suggests there are displays depicting a range of occupations and memorabilia from local
companies. Through the tea room is G B Hyde’s Shop – the former home furnishings and draper’s shop.
The Stable Block is a two storey building packed with nostalgia.
Upstairs is an old schoolroom ,toys and games along with displays dedicated to the armed forces, police and fire services and railways in Ramsey .
The museum also houses extensive archives of local family history and the range of paperwork, maps and photographs are available for photocopying. Ramsey and its surrounding villages are also well documented.
Light refreshments are provided either in our Tea Room or alfresco in the courtyard. If you prefer, bring a picnic and enjoy the peaceful setting.
