Friends of Bassetlaw Museum

Important notices (June 2018) for Friends of Bassetlaw Museum members - click on above link.

Located on Grove Street, Retford - just a short walk from the Market Square, the Museum is housed in recently restored Amcott House. This building is well worth a visit in its own right, but the museum also houses a fascinating collection ranging from Roman and Viking to modern times. The museum also has an art gallery with regularly changing exhibitions of works by local artists.

The Museum also host a wide range of activities for young and old alike. Retford Heritage Day has much going on in the Museum - click here for more...

Why not give the museum a visit - you will be surprised at the superb renovation accomplished a few years ago. Make sure you look at the ceilings!
