The Friends of Rutland County Museum and Oakham Castle have assisted many times with projects to benefit the Museum, and in the purchase of  items for the Museum’s Collections.  All donations are used by the Friends to help support the Museum and Castle – do get in contact if you would like to help too!

Here is a small selection of the items acquired by the Museum with our help – click on an object to see a larger version and learn more.

As well as objects, the Friends have helped with purchasing buildings, the redisplay of exhibition areas, funding special events and the conservation of objects.

We would like to thank all those who have donated generously over the years – your support helps us to preserve the heritage of Rutland, and enables everyone to enjoy and learn about our history.
