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.

I came here with my son on a school trip. The staff were brilliant, very involved and animated and kept the children interested. Very quirky and a little small but full of interesting facts about St. Albans. Worth a visit.

Not a bad small museum for an hour. Pleasant staff. Good exhibition on the Magna Carta and some decent exhibits on late BC early AD history. Free admission. No complaints though some of the lighting seemed a bit dim.

The entry is still free. As I asked the staff where to start the viewing, I got the impression, they were more interested to get a donation as to give any kind of support. You will find exhibits from the Romans, local area and people how they lived and worked. .A part of the exhibition space was very dark and... More

Small museum with some interesting exhibits on the history of st albans. It's free and a great place to kill an hour or so but don't expect it to take much longer. Parking can be very difficult.

Small but really interesting and well thought out - probably more for locals than visitors - but the downstairs gallery area is quite large and often hosts quite challenging contemporary art shows.
