The Museum of Harlow

The four main galleries exhibit interesting collections and interpretive displays based on the area during notable time periods, these being, Roman, Stuart and Tudor, Victorian and Modern Harlow.

There is also a temporary exhibit gallery with a series of regularly changing extras.

There are Time Detectives workshops held for kids every Saturday which is a fun middle school level combination of research and archeology with lots of interesting history included. Educational, but lots of fun too, to curious kids.

For older kids there are a regular series of talks and lectures with a varying range of historically based topics, these can be an excellent supplement to their schooling and grown ups are of course welcome too.

The galleries are all on one level so there is excellent access for guests with push or wheel chairs.

The Walled Gardens provide a pleasant outdoor element to stroll through, plus there are picnic tables out there which you are welcome to use.

It may be worth checking out The Museum of Harlow's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.

We do strongly suggest you contact The Museum of Harlow before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
