"Watford Museum on Tour" is a series of events which kicked off in October 2023. They are helping to bring the town's history alive until 2025 (when the museum moves to the Town Hall) and are accessible to everyone in the community. Keep a close eye on our social media channels for updates and announcements.
With "Watford Museum on Tour," we're breathing new life into the past, creating an immersive experience that connects Watfordians with their vibrant historical roots. These experiences are brough to you, for free, by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, with thanks to National Lottery Players.
