Daventry Museum is a friendly and fascinating social history museum. Supported by volunteers and funded by Daventry Town Council, this cultural hub is where people meet to share stories and learn about Daventry’s rich history. And whilst we can’t do this in person right now, our website and social media pages are a wealth of digital resources, history and contemporary collection responses. Visit our What’s On page for information on current and up coming exhibitions, including our 360 degree virtual museum tour and Battle of Naseby exhibition. Our Resource Centre page has lots of downloads including self guided walks and a digital Town Treasure Hunt.
Located in the centre of the England, Daventry has a complex and unique history of people moving to and through the town. Our collection tells these stories with artifacts and a social history collection. We also have a contemporary collection including oral histories, pieces that tell stories and material bringing Daventry’s history up to date and reflecting now. As well as the permanent collection, the museum has around three exhibition a year when we exhibit many interesting objects linked to Daventry’s history that have donated or often loaned by local people. If you have an item or photograph that you feel may be of interest to the museum, please do not hesitate to contact us. Tel: 01327 301246 and leave a message or email: [email protected]
