Welcome to the updated Harborough Museum website!

News tags

We are very happy to launch the updated Harborough Museum website, featuring a new design and plenty of things to do.

You can do everything you would expect on a museum website, including planning your visit or learning about our shop. Our updated website allows you to learn about and enjoy our collections more than ever before, whether it’s the Hallaton Treasure or our permanent displays.

Displays and collections

We regularly posted about some of our favourite objects, written about by our volunteers. Now you can find out all about our displays based on the themes of the museum with key objects highlighted. What will your favourite object be when you explore our collections, perhaps cursed shoes or the liberty bodice?

Explore the displays

In early 2024 the Hallaton Treasure Gallery was updated to showcase never-seen objects including five Roman cheekpieces, and two replica helmets that give people an idea of what the Hallaton Helmet might have looked like when it was first made. Learn more about the Hallaton Treasure with our online exhibition and see 3D models of amazing objects such as this cheekpiece.

Things to see and do

We are very lucky to share our space in The Symington Building with other amazing cultural organisations including Market Harborough Library, the Adult Learning and Registration services. Discover activities to do at home, other things to do in Harborough and of course, what’s on at the museum from events to exhibitions! You can even download a floorplan map with suggestions of what to see on your visit.

Discover What’s On at Harborough Museum

There’s plenty more to see on the updated Harborough Museum website, and we can’t wait to share more of our favourite objects with you. Have fun exploring using the menu at the top of the website, and let us know what you think by contacting us.
