If you are planning to visit the museum please consider:

Groups

A guided tour of the Museum can be arranged at a cost of £5 per head (£4 for concessions) with a minimum charge of £30 for the group (£60 out of opening hours).

If it is necessary to split your group because there are more than 25 in the group, a walking tour of Huntingdon or the Town Hall can be arranged for one half of the group. This can be a self-guided tour or led by a guide (for which there is a charge).

When arranging your visit please advise the museum if your group has any special interests or if you require a general tour.
