My parents came to meet me on a lunchbreak from work - we thought we'd check this out. Didn't really expect there to be much there - but were pleasantly surprised. Really interesting, and lots of things to look at. A real hidden gem.

This is a nice little museum telling St. Albans story post the Romans. They had 3 nice little temporary des plays 1 of which was Egypt & was very good. Staff were chatty & helpful. The house itself was really nice & had a really old feel but was well looked after & the displays were well done.

St Albans Museum is quaint, less busy, small but they have surprisingly interesting exhibitions and galleries, both local upstairs and worldwide downstairs. The gallery exhibit local artist work. I went to this museum over the half term with my daughter and they had the Ancient Egypt exhibition which I found to be interesting. My daughter enjoyed dressing up in the... More

Very interesting history of the city, nicely presented and some things to keep the children amused (if you have any with you - we didn't but noticed others were kept engaged). The temporary art and Egyptian exhibitions were added bonuses.

We struggled to find this museum on the maps and on internet guides but fortunately had an inkling where it was so went to find it. I'm amazed that people don't make more use of community attractions like this - it's nice to know how the place came to be and what happened to get it there. Free entry, friendly... More

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
