Have you ever walked past a building in St Albans and wondered about its history? Or spotted a detail you’ve never seen before? 

Explore the city’s heritage & learn its secrets by listening to these clips - rediscover St Albans and look at the city with fresh eyes.

Whilst St Albans Museum + Gallery was being renovated we created the Talking Building project. Over 30 local buildings were researched and given a voice.

The results were available to listen to on the museum's hoardings and you can discover them now in this online exhibition:

Talking Buildings

Many thanks to the Museum Volunteers and team, the St Albans Tour Guides, St Albans and Hertfordshire Architectural and Archaeological Society, St Albans Civic Society, St Albans Central Library and everyone else who has been involved in this project.
