The museum has three galleries containing permanent exhibitions – Discovering North Herts, Living in North Herts and The Terrace Gallery – and two temporary exhibition spaces. In the permanent displays, you can discover the history of the district, from 90 million years ago when marine reptiles swam the sea that covered us, through the arrival of the first people and the gradual transformation of the landscape to the present day. You will find out about different characters who have lived in the area, how people lived in the past and the animals you can see in your garden.

Our temporary exhibition spaces have a varied programme of displays. To find out more, visit our What’s On page.
