Every object displayed in this exhibition has a fascinating story to tell about life in St Albans.
Nominated by staff, volunteers and members of the public, each item in this display is rooted in the local community, revealing hidden histories and opening up the museums' collections.
As a semi-permanent exhibition, the objects and artefacts will continue to change and this display will develop over time.
Offering something new to see and admire each time you visit, St Albans on Demand showcases just a few of the thousands of amazing objects the museum looks after.
If you have a story or an object you’d like us to display, nominate it when you next visit or contact us.
