Oliver Cromwell was born in Huntingdon in 1599, and spent more than half his life in the town.

He became Lord Protector in 1653, the head of a British republic. The Cromwell Museum, housed in the former grammar school where he was a pupil, aims to interpret his life and legacy through portraits, documents and objects associated with him. It contains the best collection of Cromwelliana in the UK.
