Wisbech & Fenland Museum is one of the oldest purpose-built museums in the country. The original Museum Society was formed in 1835, and the present building dates from 1847. The well-preserved Museum interior enables visitors to step back in time to the heyday of the Victorian museum. The Hudson Wing addition offers a diverse range temporary exhibitions and a full range of education facilities. Disabled access to all main Museum areas is available via the side entrance and lift.
