Panoramic view of the Living in North Herts Gallery

We will be closing for two weeks from Monday 24 of June, reopening on Saturday 6 July

While we do the final preparations in the museum, we will be closed to the public for two weeks. When we reopen on 6 July, you will be able to come in through the museum’s front door and access all four galleries:

  • explore the Discovering North Hertfordshire Gallery, which deals with the history of the district from geological times to the present day;
  • see the new Blood and Bone immersive experience 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 folkore tales in the Terrace Gallery;
  • view artworks by Vanessa Stone in the Arches Gallery.

We will 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.
