Peterborough Museum houses a collection of some 227,000 objects covering the history of the Peterborough area, including archaeology, social history, art, geology, natural history, costume and militaria. Displays are being updated throughout the Museum to offer a 'hands-on' element.

The Museum has internationally important collections of marine dinosaurs (most found locally) and crafted items made by Napoleonic Prisoners of war (most kept near Peterborough at Norman Cross, history's first POW camp).

Peterborough Museum also has an ever-changing programme of temporary exhibitions, covering everything from work by local artists to hands-on displays on historical subjects. It also has a lively range of weekend events and activities, from historical re-enactment to children's activities, which all aim to bring the past to life for visitors.

The Museum also offers offsite events such as talks, lectures and the very popular Peterborough Ghost walk.

The Museum has a vibrant education programme, attracting everyone from children in formal education to pre-schoolers, adults and community groups.
