Mill Green Museum and Mill, in the tiny village of Mill Green between Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, is a little gem with loads to offer for a fun day out. You can explore the fascinating 300 year old water mill, restored to full working order. Visit the local history museum in the old mill house, bring a picnic or have a tasty cream tea on summer Sunday afternoons, from Easter to September. We are open all year round, Tuesday-Sunday plus bank holidays. We warmly welcome families and groups. There's always something new to see as we change exhibitions regularly. Every school holiday there's lots of things for children to do. We also have a lively events and activities programme.

Visited here today with a friend and four children aged 2,3,4 & 8. Most importantly the children enjoyed their visit, though we struggled to stretch the visit to two hours and that was including lunch. There is enough parking spaces for 5 cars including one disabled space, though there are other spaces on the road adjacent to the mill, outside... More

This is ideal for old and young alike. I took my grandchildren there and we all enjoyed it. sometimes they play games, everybody I have spoken to have never complained. The history is very interesting, better to go on a nice sunny day, more enjoyable especially with young children.

I was at a loose end before a meeting so popped in here. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The museum is just about ok but the renovated mill is worth seeing. You can even buy their own flour.

We often visit here in the school holidays. The activities are not only fun but also educational. Very reasonably priced. Staff are super friendly. Highly recommend a visit.

It was a good place to visit but I think the museum lacks activities, I suggest things to be brought into place where members of the public can get more involved in the mills and making of the flour. Great staff, very friendly.

Some small gardens with a stream which was very beautiful but sadly not very peaceful due to the busy main road. The... More

Lovely spot to visit, Great for all ages especially if you are lucky to be there when the Mill wheel itself is working! What was really interesting was the fact that there is a local bakery which sells the bread that
