Cromwell Museum: The Museum opened in 1962 in the old grammar school where Cromwell had been a pupil. Oliver Cromwell was born in Huntingdon in 1599. His rise to power was extraordinary, he became Lord Protector in 1653, the head of a British republic. Cromwell was driven by his religious commitment from the 1630s onwards. As MP for Cambridge he became an active soldier in the English Civil Wars of the 1640s. His success on the battlefield and his skill as a politician led him to power as Lord Protector. At his death on September 3rd 1658 he was the head of state, he is an intensely controversial and fascinating figure of British history. The Museum sets out neither to celebrate or denigrate his achievements but to interpret where possible the significance of, Gods Englishman.
