The Journey begins

On the 1st of September 2019 Ely Museum closed its doors to begin a exciting redevelopment project. Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and local organisations the project aims to rejuvenate Ely Museum and make it a fantastic destination for local people and visitors to the area. Opening autumn/winter 2020!

Throughout the closure period we will be hosting events in Ely and the surrounding area.


As the museum will be closed for a year, our education program will be quite different this year. Some school visits will take place at schools across East Cambridgeshire, and some at venues across Ely.


There are many different ways and opportunities to volunteer your time and talents at Ely Museum. Whatever your experience, there are opportunities for you to get involved.
