Local Expertise

Harborough Museum connects a network of local experts, with knowledge on a wide range of subjects. Building on the foundations of the Harborough Museum Partnership between Leicestershire County Council, Harborough District Council and the Market Harborough Historical Society enables volunteers, members of the local community and professional staff to share knowledge and information easily.

If you have a question or an enquiry about Harborough, its history and heritage it is always worth consulting the resources of the Local Studies centre.

You can also contact us by telephone, email or by popping into Harborough Museum and Market Harborough Library. Members of staff will be happy to help answer enquiries or forward them to our network of contacts for further information.
