Museum of St Albans


9A Hatfield Road, St Albans, AL1 3RR

The Museum of St Albans will be closing on 20th September 2015 as part of the planned development of a new museum and gallery in the town hall.  We have a busy summer so do visit before we shut.   Our summer projects include Wrapped, Packed and Ready to Go , an exhibition by Arabel Rosillo de Blas and art installations by Lyndall Phelps who will be occupying the cases as the curators and volunteers empty them. 

Founded as the Hertfordshire County Museum in 1898, the Museum of St Albans tells the story of St Albans from the departure of the Romans to the present day.  As well as our permanent displays telling the chronological history of the area, we have a changing programme of exhibition and events. You can find out more about what's on here.  Families receive a special welcome at the Museum of St Albans with our Family Welcome Wardrobe full of toys and dressing up, as well as trails and colouring in to make exploring the museum even more enjoyable.
