Founded as the Hertfordshire County Museum in 1898, the Museum of St Albans tells the story of St Albans from the departure of the Romans to the present day.
In the medieval gallery you can find out about Alban, Britain's first Christian martyr, and the Abbey that grew up around the site of his martyrdom. See objects used by people in medieval St Albans and learn how they lived.
More fascinating and colourful displays continue the story of how St Albans developed from a small market town into a bustling commuter city. Special displays with a wide range of objects illustrate everyday life in Victorian St Albans.
A particular attraction is the regular programme of special exhibitions, covering a whole range of subjects from Barbie dolls to the Egyptians. There is also a wide range of activities for people of all ages, more details are in the What's On section of the museum website.
