Visit the Cromwell Museum with your family and explore the life of Huntingdon's most famous son. 

Did he really cancel Christmas? Was he the first person in Britain to try pineapple? What happened to his head after he died? How did he rise from being a normal boy in Huntingdon, to become the only commoner to ever have been the head of state of the country? Visit us throughout the year, Tuesday for Saturday, free entry for all.
