New Museum Website

We're working on a new site so in the meantime, please follow us on Facebook for all the latest news and events:

High Street Trails

Our popular High Street Trails will return in 201y!


'Are You Here?' - An exhibition by the Jane Cousins

Thursday 7 July - Saturday 27 August 2016

'Are You Here?' - An exhibition by the Jane Cousins

Utilising salvaged paper and textiles, Are You Here? celebrates the beauty of discarded maps. The exhibition asks us to look again at these documents; once highly valued and now increasingly redundant in a world where the blue line of the sat nav dictates how we move, blinkered to what surrounds us.

Boat Building Workshop

Saturday 23 July, 11am - 1pm

Ages fourteen-plus. Free event. Booking essential.

Join us for an informal artist-led workshop, where you can create your own paper mache boat inspired by the map art on show. All materials provided.

Want to improve your word score? Join our friendly Scrabble Club for a game at 2pm on Friday afternoons at the museum. Each session costs just £1.50.

New Connections

Come along and join the friendly creative dance group for the over 50s at Watford Museum. New Connections is led by Laura Horn, Arts Development Officer for Watford Borough Council. Sessions run every Wednesday, from 10 - 11am and are free of charge.

New Connections creative dance group

This class explores gentle and fluid movement sequences that gradually increase joint mobility and muscular strength. Each exercise can be easily adapted to suit each individual's physical ability. All movements can be performed standing, seated or supported.

The creative elements give participants the opportunity to work together and develop their own movements in response to tasks and group ideas. This provides a stimulating workout for the brain, which enhances everyday brain functions such as memory.

More importantly! Tea and Coffee is provided after the session, giving time to unwind and socialise.

For more information and to book your place please email or call 01923 232297.

Friends of Watford Museum events

Entry to these talks is free for Friends of Watford Museum, or £3 for members of the public. Booking is essential.
