The March and District Museum Society was established, initially as an Historical Society, by a group of prominent March people in 1972. Since 1977 it has been located in the former South District Infants School in the High Street, which was originally built in 1851 and is a Grade II listed building. Set up as a local folk museum, there are a number of displays showing the life and times of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries and ongoing to the present day. Room arrangements represent a kitchen, parlour and nursery bedroom while the outside exhibits include a reconstructed working forge, a Fenland cottage and privy.
