Overview

Mill Green Museum and Mill, in the tiny village of Mill Green between Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, is a little gem with loads to offer for a fun day out. You can explore the fascinating 300 year old water mill, restored to full working order. Visit the local history museum in the old mill house, bring a picnic or have a tasty cream tea on summer Sunday afternoons, from Easter to September. We are open all year round, Tuesday-Sunday plus bank holidays. We warmly welcome families and groups. There's always something new to see as we change exhibitions regularly. Every school holiday there's lots of things for children to do. We also have a lively events and activities programme.

This is a working water mill and local museum with gardens. At this time of year (end of November) the café is shut but there is a coffee machine that makes a reasonable brew. You could get around the whole museum and mill in half...More

Many years ago I used to visit the museum often with my two sons. It always felt as it was in the heart of the country and I have no reason to believe that anything is different. I now live over 100 miles away so...More

It's a little museum with rich local history, volunteers are friendly, good quality of bread flour for sale. It's a bit walk from Hatfield Station but it would be good for walking during sunny or dry days. Good events for family day out.

Sometimes when you find something that is educational for the children the reality is that they don't want educating. Not here. The children (aged 9) were fascinated with how everything worked and how flour is made. I am sure that it helped that I timed...More
