North Hertfordshire will soon have a brand new museum next door to the completely refurbished Town Hall in Brand Street, Hitchin. The museum will display collections from the old Letchworth and Hitchin museums and many items from around the District that have never before been on public display.
We are most grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for generously supporting the project.
Some of the items from the new displays are shown here. To see images of the new museum under construction please visit our Flickr page.
