  • explore the Discovering North Hertfordshire Gallery, which deals with the history of the district from geological times to the present day;
  • see changing exhibitions of art in the Exhibition Gallery;
  • discover how people’s lives have changed over thousands of years in the Living in North Hertfordshire Gallery;
  • see the football collection, objects from all around the world, items from our art collections and animations of local folklore tales in the Terrace Gallery;
  • view art exhibitions in the Arches Gallery, part of the Terrace Gallery.

We have a shop where you can buy gifts and local souvenirs, and a café serving a variety of food, and hot and cold drinks.
Admission is free.
