Loans Boxes

A selection of loans boxes are available for schools and groups to use within their classroom or meeting room. For further information please contact the Museum.

Tours of the Museum

Tours of the Museum (the old gaol) are also available to any interested groups, by special arrangement. Volunteers and Friends of Ely Museum act as museum guides for special tours, or let the gaoler show you round (if you dare!). The Museum benefits from the expertise of several volunteers who are Ely Blue Badge Guides.
