Ramsey Rural Museum is an independent museum set in a peaceful rural location on the edge of the market town of Ramsey in Cambridgeshire.

Our main focus is the working and social history of Ramsey and the surrounding area of Cambridgeshire, concentrating on the period 1800 to 2000 AD.

There is more about the museum and the work we do in About Us and the story of the museum’s development is told in History.
