We are a local charitable trust run by local willing volunteers.
Our aim is to preserve both the Cottage along with its collection and then also preserve the history of the wider Woodhall Spa community. The Cottage Museum is located in the centre of Woodhall Spa and we are always keen to be engaged with the community
Our income is generated from entrance fees, donations and fund raising events. We rely heavily on the goodwill of our volunteers who freely give their time.
If you are interested in volunteering in any way please do contact the Museum on 01526 352456.

The Bell Award is presented from time to time to a young person who has done something of merit for the Museum. The award came about as a result of a burglary at the Museum when the Bell Cup, which belonged to the Woodhall Spa Agricultural Show Society, was stolen. The Bell family, who had donated the cup, had retained the rights to it and donated the insurance payment to the museum, but asked that the memory of Joseph Bell be maintained. The museum trustees at the time agreed to do this through the Bell Award.
Three awards have been given out to young volunteers, chosen for their commitment and a willingness to undertake a variety of tasks and activities. The awards were made in April 2011, August 2012 and December 2014.
