Bedford Museum

Embark on a fascinating journey through the human and natural history of North Bedfordshire, pausing briefly to glimpse at wonders from more distant lands. Go back in time to visit the delightful rural room sets and the Old School Museum, where Blackbeard's sword, 'Old Billy' the record breaking longest-lived horse and numerous other treasures and curiosities can be found. Housed in the former Higgins and Sons Brewery, Bedford Museum is situated within the gardens of bygone Bedford Castle, beside the great Ouse embankment. Changing programme of temporary exhibitions.
