Cromwell Museum Temporary Closure

Following new advice from the UK Government issued yesterday to avoid all unnecessary social contact, and in partnership with Huntingdon Town Council, the Cromwell Museum has taken the difficult decision to temporarily close to the public from 4pm today, Tuesday 17 March.

Stuart Orme, Curator of the Cromwell Museum says “This has been a very difficult and heart-rending decision for us, particularly as we only reopened after our major refurbishment a few weeks ago. However, our first priority has to be the welfare and good health of our amazing team of volunteers and our visitors. As such we’ll be closing the Museum for a few weeks and we thank everyone for their support and patience during these exceptional circumstances.”

The Museum hopes to reopen in May, and in the meantime will add further digital content on its website and YouTube visitors to keep people engaged whilst in ‘social isolation’. Visitors are asked to visit the Museum’s website at, follow it on Facebook at @thecromwellmuseum or on Twitter at @museumcromwell to keep up to date with what’s going on.
