Daventry Museum used to be housed in the Moot Hall on the Market Square. It contained permanent exhibitions about life in the Daventry district together with a programme of temporary exhibitions.

It closed on the 31st March 2004 and its collection went into storage.

The Town Council took over the collection in 2008 and added it to the small collection which had been started by Roy Sharpe in Bishop Crewe House.

More recently the Town Council moved to 3 New Street and it was decided to refurbish the museum completely. The new museum opened to the public on 14 September 2013.

The museum is currently closed due to pandemic restrictions. It is staffed by volunteers and is usually open from 9.30 to 13.30 Tuesday to Friday and from 10.00 to 16.00 on the first Saturday of the month.
