Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery is one of the city’s most historic buildings and is just a 2 minute walk from Queensgate Shopping Centre. The building contains interactive displays and galleries for all ages and the museum’s collection includes over 200,000 objects of great national and international importance.
There is always something new to see in our contemporary galleries showcase nationally and internationally renowned artists as well as talented local artists.
