Museum Celebrates 50 Years
Rutland County Museum celebrates its 50th birthday this year! The museum was officially opened on 12 May 1969 by the Duchess of Gloucester. This was the culmination of ten years of hard work by the ‘Friends of the Museum’ to establish a county museum. Throughout this year there will be a series of special events, displays and exhibitions to mark this milestone.
