Recently visited the Manor House Museum and thoroughly enjoyed reading about the Witches of Northamptonshire. Love to visit now and again as there is always something different to see.

The displays upstairs change regularly and are always very informative and of local interest. As the museum is not too biug it is good for children as well as adults and there are interesting activities for the children. My granbdchild loves going there.

This museum is well worth a visit, providing a good insight into its social history including the shoe and boot industry of the past, and the setting up of the co-operative society. Two floors of exhibits. Good, clear, explanations of exhibits. Allow 1-2 hours.

Visited here a few times. It is a lovely small museum that shows the history of the town. In addition the museum also has bespoke demonstrations on specific subjects on occasion. Check local advertising for detail. A lovely museum.

Lovely permanent exhibits and changing exhibitions as well. Well worth a visit, indeed, several visits each time the exhibitions change. Why not pop into the Art Gallery whilst you're here?
