Hallaton Museum was the inspiration of Mrs Honoria Whigham who wanted to record, for future generations, a way of life in a small village community which was rapidly changing.
To this end a great variety of artefacts were gathered to form the nucleus of an historic local collection and a display mounted each year.
The Museum doors have been open to guests since 1978. We are changing and evolving all the time in an effort to consistently offer new experiences to you and your family.
