Our Mission Statement: Hertford Museum aims to collect, preserve and interpret evidence of the history of the county town and surrounding parishes in the district of East Hertfordshire for the interest, enjoyment and understanding of the local community and other visitors.

Stop The Rot! Collections in Action

Saturday 16th July - Saturday 27th August

Tuesday - Saturday, 10.00 am - 5.00pm

Discover how we care for our vast and varied collections, the risks they face and how museums work to reduce them.

Our collection encompasses objects of all material types, from plastics to textiles, and items made this year to objects formed 500 million years ago. Caring for such a large and diverse collection is challenging and expensive as most objects are not made to last indefinitely.

This exhibition is illustrated by an eclectic mix of collections and packed full of useful information for taking care of your treasures at home.
