The Gordon Boswell Romany Museum is the lifetime's work Gordon Boswell, who has amassed a collection of artefacts, photographs, and several examples of the characteristic wagon or Vardo.[1][2][3] [4] The collection is housed at Clay Lake, Spalding in Lincolnshire, England.

The museum also operates a number of non-Romany vehicles, including a horse-drawn hearse.


The museum is open on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays between roughly Easter and the end of October each year. There is access to all exhibits for the disabled. An admission fee is charged. The museum uses one of the wagons for organised trips in the nearby Fenland.[5]
