Museum - 2018 Dave and Amreeta photo (00


Our Visit England accredited museum is housed in the former offices of Benskins Brewery.  Telling the story of Watford past and present, the museum has displays of local history, industry and archaeology. These include Watford at War, Print and Brewing and a display on Watford Football Club – which includes some fabulous Elton John memorabilia.

We are glad to welcome you back to the Museum from Saturday 1 August.

We have brought in new arrangements to keep everyone safe whilst visiting the museum in our beautiful 18th Century Grade II listed building. This includes new safety and hygiene arrangements.


Making a booking:

We’re limiting visiting times to start with to Saturdays and you are asked to book in advance for a timed visit to the museum, giving information that we will keep for 21 days in line with Track and Trace guidelines.

If you have any access requirements or concerned please let us know.


When visiting:

Staff will be here to help.

Not every gallery may be accessible - please check before visiting.

Please be thoughtful - don't visit if you suspect you may be ill or have been in contact with someone who is ill.

You will be asked to wear a mask on your visit - these can be provided, but better if you can bring your own reusable mask.

Car Parking:

We cannot guarantee a parking space, but if you would like to park in our small car park behind the museum, please provide us with your car registration details when booking.

Thank you for your understanding and support. We look forward to seeing you soon, but please don’t hesitate to contact us in the meantime if you require any assistance.
