This old-school free small city museum provides interesting displays of (slightly randomly) Egyptian history, with some quality exhibits and new angles to provide new facts even for those who are familiar with the larger displays at British Museum for example). The floors on local history are quite old fashioned in their presentation but plenty of facts from the city’s founding... More

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.
