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.
Other permanent displays include the Cassiobury Collection of Fine Art, which features portraits of the Essex family capturing the Earls, their wives and children. You can also view works painted of Cassiobury itself including John Wootton's A View of Cassiobury Park painted circa 1748.
As well as its wonderful displays, the museum has a full calendar of events and activities going on. From action packed activities for children to themed walking tours of Watford High Street. These are all complimented by an ongoing series of exhibitions at the Museum’s Space2 art gallery.
