North Hertfordshire Museum is next door to the refurbished Town Hall in Brand Street, Hitchin. We display collections from the old Letchworth and Hitchin museums and many items from around the District that have never before been on public display.

We are most grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for generously supporting the project.

Who runs the museum?

The Museum Service of North Herts Council manages North Hertfordshire Museum.

The service aims to increase the understanding and enjoyment of the culture, heritage and environment of North Hertfordshire, using our collections to tell the stories of the people who have lived and worked here.

Our vision is to provide a welcoming museum that plays an active role in the life of the District.

Draft Museum Strategy

We have recently produced a draft Museum Strategy, which sets out our aims for North Herts Museum from 2022 until 2026. It has four main aims, relating to our audiences, our finances, our collections, and our organisation. Ros Allwood, our Cultural Services Manager, would love to hear your thoughts on the Strategy as it stands so far. Do you agree with the aims? Have we left anything out? Your feedback will help us to ensure that the final Strategy reflects the views of our users and our supporters and will help us reach new audiences. If you have a minute to read the Strategy and email Ros Allwood before 22 July 2022 with your thoughts, however brief, that would be extremely helpful.
