The purpose of St Albans Museums is to safeguard the special heritage of St Albans and District and to share it widely. We do this by running two museums, three heritage sites and providing a programme of public events and exhibitions.
The Museum service is funded by St Albans City and District Council. The Museum staff are employed by the Council and are assisted by a team of volunteers.
The Council have agreed a ten year development plan which involves closing the Museum of St Albans in September 2015 in order to develop a new museum and gallery using the Town Hall building in the centre of St Albans. The Heritage Lottery Fund have awarded round one funding to this project and we submitted an application for stage two funding during summer 2015. St Albans City and District Council are contributing most of the funds for the new museum and gallery but we still need to fundraise! Volunteers at the charity St Albans Museums and Galleries Trust are hard at work on the fundraising under the title of "renaissance:St Albans".
