A small museum in the heart of Loughborough, in Queens Park. Exhibits are good, especially the ones on Herbert Morris Cranes (where I used to work), brought back some fond memories. Best of all, it's free entry.

It's a small museum but it has lots of information about the Charnwood region. There are some hidden things that the kids will love.

A lovely museum - and it's free. Lots of interesting, local exhibits and lovely, inexpensive gifts. There's also a great cafe.

Happened to be staying in the area and popped in for a look see. Really helpful staff who took time out to explain the history of the building. So while in Queens Park, well worth a visit.
