St Albans City and District Council have agreed a ten year improvement plan for the city’s museums. The first phase of the project involves moving the existing provision at the Museum of St Albans to the Town hall. This new facility in the Grade II* listed Town Hall will enable the museum service to conserve, interpret and display the St Albans heritage from the medieval to the present day, host touring exhibitions and contemporary exhibitions.
To create a vibrant, distinct and unique venue at the heart of St Albans that offers higher visibility and more exposure to the post-Roman heritage than can be currently offered. The existing museum attracts around 20,000 people per year, with the majority of those from the local area. The audience is made up of all age ranges but the current site limits the depth of understanding of the heritage that can be communicated and restricts active community engagement. The opportunity to offer learning activities is particularly restricted in the current site.
