Celebrations are taking place to mark the event

It's 50 years this weekend since Rutland County Museum first opened its doors.

It was May the 12th 19-69 that it first opened in Oakham...and today, a day ahead of the actual anniversary, it's holding a family fun day to celebrate.

Around eighteen thousand people visit the Museum each year.  It's planning special exhibitions and workshops to further celebrate its 50th, later in the year.
