Our current exhibitions

Rembrandt in Print

18 January – 19 April 2020
To launch Hertfordshire’s Year of Culture, we are hosting an exhibition from the Ashmolean Museum of prints by Rembrandt van Rijn, one of the greatest artists of all time. It consists of prints from their world-class collection of prints made by the artist, spanning much of his career.

Dan the Scribbler: Colouring in for a Living

Dan is a Hitchin-based graphic artist and illustrator whose work combines computer-generated images with more traditional media. His exhibition is in The Arches until 26 January 2020.

Escape Rooms

Oh no! Someone has tried to steal a precious object from the museum and we need you to find it. All we know is they didn’t manage to get it out before they were caught; however, their twisted game means you and others are trapped in the museum. Solve the puzzles, find the object and escape before the hour runs out!

We aim not to scare the socks off you, just test your puzzle solving skills to the limit. Great for an evening out with friends or team building with work colleagues. Groups of up to six per session; for larger groups we will divide you across consecutive time slots.

The Escape room lasts about an hour and afterwards you will have use of our conference room for up to an hour, which includes a bottle of Prosecco and nibbles.

Cost per group (up to 6 people) is £120
