Admission is free.
We are currently open on Wednesdays from 10am – 4pm.
If you would like to visit us outside of these hours, please book an appointment.
We hope to be fully accessible to the public by Summer 2018.
We are located in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre, with easy access from both Abington Street and the Market Square. Our entrance is located just through the Market Square entrance, immediately to your right – opposite EuroChange. We are accessible by the stairs (come all the way to the top), or the lift (floor 2).
For GPS devices, our postcode is NN1 2EW. Northampton Town has plenty of available parking, with a number of different Multi-Storey car parks provided by Northampton Borough Council. Mayorhold Car Park is the closest to our museum, with St. Michael’s Car Park just a short walk down our high street.
Northampton Town is a central hub for public transportation, and most bus services will stop either at The Drapery or at the Bus Station. We are just a short walk away, across the Market Square.
Northampton Train Station is a 10 minute walk from the centre of our town, with direct rail links to London and Birmingham as well as other cross country services. From the main exit of the train station, walk straight ahead, passing the cinema on your left, and head directly up Gold Street. If you continue, you will find the Market Square. We are located just inside the Grosvenor Centre.
