Quorn Village On-line Museum

This museum opened its virtual doors in July 2009. It was created and is run by a very small team of enthusiastic volunteers. The aim of the museum is to document the history of Quorn and to provide an archive of local information that is not only of value to the local or family historian, but will also give pleasure to the casual browser. Hours of painstaking transcription and research has gone into bringing you this unique repository of village information.

We rely on your input to further develop this museum website. If you feel that you have information to contribute, please contact us.
