Hertford Museum reopens to the public on Saturday 27th February 2010 following a major redevelopment project.
The museum has been closed since December 2008 while the work was taking place. Around £1 million has been spent and the many improvements and changes include:
- new lifts to enable access for all
- a refurbished temporary exhibition space that will change regularly
- a new extension called the ‘Andrews Room’ that will be used for activities, talks, school visits and groups
- three new computers with broadband Internet access for visitors to use for things such as local and family history searches
- a new shop and reception area
- a new ground floor ‘Resource Room’ for people to research local history
- a touch-screen kiosk where visitors can access a collection of photographs of the town and other local areas
- listening posts featuring people talking about life in Hertford
Admission to the museum is free.
