Wellingborough Museum

In Dulley's Baths since 1892

The building which is home to Wellingborough Museum has seen many incarnations through the years. It began life in 1892 as a swimming pool, known as ‘Dulley’s Baths’. The pool was built by David Dulley, a local brewer. Later in 1919, the Baths were converted into a shoe factory. Today, the museum welcomes visitors to explore a range of exhibits. There are two main museum gallery areas:

Downstairs gallery: These exhibits explore early history. Find information on the Iron Age and other eras including Roman Britain and the Middle Ages, through to Victorian times and WWI.

Upstairs gallery: Focuses on the 20th century and features a recreation of a 1940s living room and kitchen. Other highlights include a recreation of a haberdashery shop of the era.

Wellingborough Museum is fun and interactive, look out for the 1920s pianola, and see if you can play a tune. Visitors are also invited to use the 1950s seaside arcade machines, which work using pre-decimal coins. There is a sandpit and putting green outside for use in warmer weather.
