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.

The museum is set over 3 floors with the ground floor holding temporary exhibits. There is no entry charge and if you have some free... More

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.

With temporary exhibitions on the ground floor, the upper two floors chronicle the strory of the town from the Romans on with 1900 onwards on the top floor.

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

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.

Why is the Museum of St Albans not bigger? There is so much history in and around St Albans that it could fill a building much bigger building. Entry is free, so you can spend as much or little time as you want and then return again. I was tempted to give a couple of 50p's donation so that they... More

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.
