Stevenage Museum is a lively community service working with local people and groups to present a full programme of projects, exhibitions and events.

Our permanent displays show life in the town from pre-history to the present day. You can time travel with Sam on a trail for the under eights. Use a touch screen computer to access the photographic collection. Listen to oral history recordings recalling the history of the town and its people.
