Discover the story of this Hertfordshire town, from when it was first occupied in the Mesolithic period in 6,000 BC to the present day.
Explore local archaeology, geology and social history in the museum’s four galleries, which showcase a variety of exhibitions and displays throughout the year, exploring topics such as transport, industry, public houses, and the famous ‘Great Bed of Ware.’ Once cited by Shakespeare in his celebrated play Twelfth Night, the 'Great Bed of Ware' is a large 16th century oak four-poster bed, which originally resided in a local inn; it now lives in the V&A and is one of their greatest treasures.
Visitors can also experience walking on top of a medieval well that has been fitted with glass and a real-life World War II bunker that was permanently staffed to co-ordinate local defences and respond to air raids. Its interior and décor has been maintained so visitors can get an authentic feel for that period in history and what the inhabitants endured.
