The History of Peterborough Museum
The first house recorded on the site of the museum was in the 16th century. A mansion was built for the Orme family, who were given land in the area by King Henry VIII in 1536.
The very first building on this site was a Tudor building, called Neville Place. And in the Priestgate Vaults, the historic cellars, you can see the remains of that building and also learn about the stories of the ghosts of the buildings past." The Orme family were MPs and magistrates for the city and were the people responsible for building the Guildhall in Cathedral Square.
The core of the current building dates back to 1816 when it was home to the local magistrate, Thomas Cooke, and his first wife Judith.
Legend has it that he used to pass judgement on people over breakfast. So that your local nightly drunk would come in the morning and if he was found to be not guilty then they would send him away with a pint of beer apparently. So if he hadn't been drunk and disorderly, to begin with, he would have been when he was leaving."
Peterborough Museum has a collection of some 227,000 objects, including local archaeology and social history ranging from the products of the Roman pottery industry to a collection of marine fossil remains of international importance from the Jurassic period.
The museum also contains the original manuscripts of John Clare, the "Northamptonshire Peasant Poet" as he was commonly known in his own time and the Norman Cross collection of items made by French prisoners of war.These prisoners were kept at Norman Cross on the outskirts of Peterborough from 1797 to 1814, in what is believed to be the world's first purpose built prisoner-of-war camp.
