This district museum unites two formerly separate collections from Letchworth and Hitchin venues.

The museum provides a chronological account of life in the area through its displays of art, archaeological objects, costume and fashion items and natural history specimens.

A temporary exhibition space hosts a changing programme of shows throughout the year.


Permanent collection

An amalgamation of the Letchworth and Hitchin museum collections, the holdings span from a Polyphon to a Penny farthing bicycle, Roman pottery to a large dolls’ house, art by William Ratcliffe, FL Griggs and the Lucas family to a selection of taxidermy creatures.
