New Museum and Gallery

Tell us what you think

St Albans City and District Council have agreed a development plan for the Museum of St Albans and Verulamium Museum.  

Phase 1: Move the Museum of St Albans to the Town hall.  Opening in 2017. This new facility in the Grade II* listed Town Hall will enable us to create a vibrant and distinct venue at the heart of St Albans.  In the new museum and gallery we will interpret, display and conserve St Albans heritage, host touring and contemporary art exhibitions and provide new visitor and tourist information facilities. The new museum and gallery will act as a base for exploring the historic town centre.

How your views will help: We are keen to hear your views on the project. You can have your say via our on-line survey here. The questionnaire should take 5-10mins and all of your responses will be kept anonymous. The views submitted will be collected and used to help shape the project.
