Oliver Cromwell House

The former home of the Lord Protector and Ely's most famous resident now boasts a completely re-vamped Civil War Exhibition with impressive interactive displays and interpretation. There is also a new timeline and family tree to provide more engaging content about this complex man who kills a King, but refused the crown. Visitors will still have the opportunity to try on costumes and try out the games of the time but will also have the chance to truly experience what life was like on the battle fields during the English Civil War in the new mini encampment. At the end of the tour, visitors will still be asked to decide whether they feel Cromwell was a Hero or a Villain with a new voting system.
