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.

All staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Suitable for disabled; other than top half of mill. Miller very informative and interesting; you can buy their flour in shop. Only disappointment was no café, but are currently in process of planning, so will not be long!

For a small museum it is full of treasures, particularly impliments of the past. It is also a working mill with regular demonstrations.

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.
