Rushden Transport Museum is situated in the old Midland Railway Station of 1894 which once formed part of the Wellingborough to Higham Ferrers branch line.

Taken over by the Rushden Historical Transport Society in 1984, the station also provides the society with a social club. While outside can be found a variety of railway rolling stock and road transport vehicles.

The heritage railway is operated by the Rushden, Higham and Wellingborough Railway, using both steam and diesel locomotives to operate passenger trains at events throughout the year over the ½ mile of track.
