A pleasant afternoon with something for everyone. On three floors in an old church, the story of St Albans is told from its early days right up the the latter half of the 20th century. As an added bonus there is even a free car park next door, but only for those visiting the museum.

Go and visit the St Albans museum. A hidden and often overlooked gem. You can learn all about st Albans history and every moth there is a theme change weather it be 60's fashion, the Victorian era, Vikings! Always worth popping in to learn something new.

Took the grandchildren to a Halloween craft session in half term last week. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and later wore the skeleton costumes they made to go 'trick or treating'. I joined them on a 'ghost walk' which was very interesting and the children loved it. The museum staff are excellent and very friendly. The exhibitions are interesting and there... More

I thought the displays were excellent, very clear and well- presented. I particularly liked the Roman villa and the reconstruction of the carpenter`s house and also the wonderful mosaics.

Can't ask for better value for money, as it's free! Great to bring out-of-town people. Interesting exhibit of daily life, with weirdly fascinating items from old dentists and doctors.

Lots of interesting displays ranging from the life of an Abbey monk to how... More

The Museum of St Albans has occupied its building since 1899 and tells the story of St Albans' growth from the small town recorded in the Domesday Book to its evolution through the 20th Century. The ground floor currently houses a temporary exhibition "Goggles and Gadgets" which has fascinating items collated between 1851-1951..the kind of items someone from the baby... More
