Exhibition

The museum contains a history of Woburn and its surroundings from pre-historic times to the present day. There are 28 graphic boards arranged chronologically and artifacts, mostly donated by local residents. There is also a study area with local censuses, registers and folders, plus an index of the legible gravestones in the churchyard. Ideal for family research.

Shop

In the small shop area there is a variety of cards, toys, mugs and walk leaflets. We also sell second-hand books and jigsaws and books on the local area. There is also a mouse trail for children to find little wooden mice hidden around the building.
