I visited on a wet day and it was nice to go somewhere interesting to learn more about the local area and dry out a little.

I was encouraged to check in using the Serco Track & Trace app. The museum is free to visit although you can make donations by cash and also contactless.

The museum has lots of different things to learn about if you are an adult or a child. I also enjoyed the Jacobean garden.

The museum is very user friendly for anyone whether they are able to use steps or not.

The second floor has more to explore and I was interested in the Addis collection. I never knew there were so many different toothbrushes!

There is a small area to buy gifts and the staff were all friendly and welcoming.

Fabulous local treasure. A wide range of objects, some very quirky, mostly with local provenance. The Garden is particularly lovely. There is always a friendly welcome at the museum which is well worth a visit.

We visited with my cousin who had not been there before as they have not moved there. We found the history interesting.

We love Hertford museum and visit often. My children love the binoculars and buckets, toys etc they take around the museum. There is always a nice selection of books and activities for children in the temporary displays plus the shop on the first floor is always a must. Lovely activities for children in the holidays and we go to toddler Tuesdays too once a month - lovely to play with some good quality wooden toys and read some lovely stories!

Interesting little museum, beautifully kept and ityems well labelled.
We were just 2 adults on a rainy afternoon waiting to go somewhere else, It kept us happy for most of an hour. I am sure children would enjoy it as well.

Visited on a wet Sunday afternoon. It's free to get in, and when we visited they had a craft activity too. They have buckets to fill with magnifying glasses and torches to look around the museum with, with a list of things to look out for. The museum itself is small with lots of fairly recent stuff upstairs (to make parents feel even older), lots to interest our 3 and 5 year olds. Star attraction is the play shop with till and play - complete with aprons, shopping bags, money.... Outside is very pretty (even in the rain!) near the river, and there are plenty of cafes - we went to Langleys (cash only) which was perfect for everyone.

A lovely little museum. Staff are so friendly and attentive. There is always something going on. Entrance is free.
You can even book a walk around town and learn some history.

It is free to enter with a recommended donation of £2. It has some weird and wonderful bits however does not really offer a history of Hertford as I was expecting - so a let down.

Although the museum is small, entrance is free and there are some really interesting and out of the ordinary collections in there. It's well worth a visit.

I recently visited the Museum and found it very interesting. There is a large amount of varied exhibits and everything is clearly described. I particularly liked the First World War exhibition. The staff gave me a warm welcome and were very helpful.
