The doors of the long-awaited entrance to North Hertfordshire Museum will be opening in 3 weeks time.
As well as a new entrance hall with its welcome desk, there will be a shop and café too. Upstairs our Terrace Gallery will open, with displays showcasing the people, art and collections of North Herts. Sit down in our mini cinema and enjoy animations of local folk tales. The Arches Exhibition Space will feature local artists’ work, starting with Vanessa Stone and her beautiful paper cut pictures of the district.

In our main exhibition gallery there will be a fabulous sensory experience for family audiences. Drop in and see Blood and Bone, an interactive installation. Spacecadets Air Designs have taken inspiration from human biology and the artworks are inspired by cells and organisms inside our bodies. You are invited to explore, listen to and touch a series of giant breathing tunnels and caves.

Come down on Saturday 6 July at 10:15 am to see the entrance doors officially open for the first time.

We will be joined by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Neville Reyner, as well as, members of the District Council:

  • Chairman of the Council, Cllr Jean Green
  • Leader of the Council, Cllr Martin Stears-Handscomb
  • Executive Member for Enterprise and Co-operative Development, Cllr Keith Hoskins

Drop in for free and take part in family activities that will be running all day. Be one of the first people to experience the fully open North Hertfordshire Museum.

Important information: the Museum will be closed from 24 June till we reopen on 6 July.


North Hertfordshire Museum is most grateful to the National Lottery Heritage fund as without it we wouldn’t have such a wonderful new museum.

One Response to The Museum will be open fully on Saturday 6 July 2019!

  • At last…at last…the Museum will be properly open. I began to feel that I would never see the day arrive. Perhaps now some attention will be given to the old museum, and what can be done with it – rather than just leaving it to decay quietly. I look forward to at last making one of many visits.
