Museum of St Albans
The museum was founded as the "Hertfordshire County Museum" in 1898. The museum presented the history of St Albans from the end of the Romans onwards. The medieval gallery covers Saint Alban, who was the first Christian martyr in Britain, together with St Albans Abbey that was founded on the site where he was martyred. Outside there is a small wildlife garden with a pond.
The Hatfield Road venue was closed to the public in September 2015 as part of a project to move the content to a new location in the City centre.
