Stevenage Museum to reopen in March

29 Feb 2016

Stevenage Museum will celebrate reopening its doors on Saturday 12 March after the repair work to the floor in the main lecture room was completed following the flood caused by heavy rain in July last year. 

The Museum, which has continued to hold regular activities for people to enjoy in its events room, is hosting an official open day on 12 March from 1pm to 4pm. Visitors can enjoy Tudor dancing from 1.30pm to 2.15pm and then 2.45pm to 3.30pm as well as a Tudor mystery object quiz. Refreshments, including cream teas, will also be available. The event is being organised in conjunction with the Museum’s new youth volunteers from Nobel School.

In the lead up to the Museum’s reopening, a Future Proof event, which gives people the chance to have their say on what the Museum does well and what it can improve upon, will take place on 10 March from 2pm-4pm and 4.30pm-6.30pm.

Cllr Richard Henry, Executive Member for Children, Young People and Leisure, said: “I am very pleased to announce that Stevenage Museum will fully reopen in March. Our staff and volunteers have worked incredibly hard since the Museum closed to get us to a stage where we can look forward to reopening so I would like to thank them for their efforts. On behalf of the council I would also like to express my thanks to the other organisations and partners, including North Herts Museum, that have helped out.”
