A purpose-built First World War xhibition telling the story of Hertfordshire and its residents both at home and abroad during the Great War. With many previously unseen collections, children's activities, free research facilities and Cinema room, the exhibition is a great way to find out about Hertfordshire and the role its people played in WW1 a century ago. Open Thurs-Sat 10-4.

Really interesting to see how local history ties in to the greater war. Worth going if you are familiar with the herts area, and even otherwise. Appreciate the effort gone into curating this exhibition.

A well presented and interesting museum, especially at present due to the WW1 centenary - the displays are good and there are plenty of facts to see and read. Its certainly worth a visit if around the area.
