We are an independent museum in Huntingdonshire situated in open countryside on the edge of a small Fenland town. Housed in renovated 17th century farm buildings, the museum is full of items and exhibits kindly donated by local companies and the public. Ramsey Rural Museum is a charitable trust that is managed and maintained entirely by volunteers.

On site there are many areas showing a variety of machinery, implements and vehicles spanning 200 years of rural life.


Entry to the museum by the public began in 1983. However, after further restoration and preparation of exhibits and displays, the Museum was officially opened by local authoress Sybil Marshall in 1988.

The interiors of the Trades Room and Stable Block were transformed.

Over the years more improvements have been made in landscaping and enhancement to building exteriors.

The displays have also expanded, to incorporate a wealth of memorabilia depicting rural life alongside an array of renovated machinery and vehicles.

Ramsey Rural Museum continues to be a real community project
