Welcome back, we’ve missed you!

We reopened our doors on Tuesday 18th May and are so pleased to be able to welcome you back to our award-winning museum.

Daventry Museum is a friendly and fascinating social history museum with regularly changing exhibitions and programme of events. Supported by a team of invaluable volunteers and funded by Daventry Town Council, this cultural hub is where people meet to share stories and learn about Daventry’s rich history whilst also shaping the continuing history of the town.

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon and making your visit a memorable one!
