Peterborough Museum Society was founded in 1871 as the Peterborough Natural History Society and Field Club. Within a decade it had widened its interests and laid the foundation of a museum and a library. It became the Natural History, Scientific, and Archaeological Society and in 1947 took its modern title of Museum Society. In 1968 the museum, housed in the Priestgate building, was presented to the City of Peterborough.

The society still meets there on alternate Tuesdays during the winter for lectures covering its wide interests: local history and archaeology; conservation and natural history; literature and fine arts. the society is able to promote and publish paper of research and has a comprehensive list of publications.
