Attraction Information

Chelmsford Museum
Set in a park with an adventure play area, the museum offers a nice variety of exhibits, from a fine collection of fossils, a living beehive and British wildlife galleries, to the history of the Essex Regiment and the Essex Yeomanry.
The Story of Chelmsford exhibition takes the visitor on a journey in the Chelmer Valley from the Ice Ages to the present day, taking in the major archaeological monuments and sites in the district, as well as more recent history.
Making use of interactive displays, the Bright Sparks Exhibition is a fascinating insight into the story of how modern industries such as Marconi, Hoffmann and Marriages developed into key industrial pioneers in the market town of Chelmsford.
Check out their site for full information on their galleries.
