The museum is currently closed but staff are working towards re-opening, hopefully on 6 August with pre-booked guided tours. We are also working on a virtual exhibition: The Story of Stevenage in 100 objects, we are looking for people to come and choose an object, so please get in touch if you’d like to get involved.

Residents are invited to share their favourite objects from Stevenage’s history, with the launch of Stevenage Museum’s ‘story of Stevenage in 100 objects’ project.
