The new St Albans Museum + Gallery

St Albans has a remarkable history and some outstanding stories to tell. Now we have the opportunity to transform the Town Hall into a new museum and gallery at the cultural heart of our city.

The project is estimated to cost £7.75 million. We have received significant funding from a number of sources, including £2.8 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund. St Albans City and District Council have pledged £3.25 million towards the project (coming from the council's development of the old museum site into houses).

The new museum is expected to open in summer 2018 (Verulamium Museum is unaffected and will remain open).
