Come and explore the heritage of Ely and the surrounding fens, from the prehistoric creatures who swam in the ancient oceans to Ely today.
Find out about the ways of life from the wide wetlands to the rich farmland and how the unusual landscape has shaped the lives of the people who lived here. Built on an island of solid land surrounded by marshes, discover the development of Ely from a monastic foundation to a market town.
There is no need to pre-book your tickets, they can be purchased in person at the museum, on the day.
Ely Museum will be open as usual on Bank Holidays Tuesday 2nd and Friday 3rd June.
