Attraction Information

Melton Carnegie Museum, located in the lovely old Carnegie Library that was built in 1905, gives you the chance to explore the story of Melton, and of the people who have made it their home.

Stilton Cheese and Pork Pies from Melton Mowbray are famous all around the world, and you can explore the history of these trades, and others including saddlery, shoemaking and tinsmithing, as you learn about the impact they had on the town.

Go back even further in time to see how the Romans, Anglo Saxons, Normans, Tudors, Georgians, and Victorians would have lived in the area. You can also learn about what happened to the borough during times of war.

There is so much history to discover about this medieval market town and the surrounding area, with excellent permanent displays, interactive areas, and seasonal exhibits that cover all aspects of the local history.

The museum is free to visit.
