Welcome to Elstree & Borehamwood Museum

Elstree and Borehamwood Museum is an independent local history museum which opened its doors in 2000. It evolved out of a community history project with a small collection of objects and photographs. Run entirely by volunteers, the museum has acquired a large collection of items leading to the production of themed displays, talks, workshops for schools and local community groups and answering a busy enquiry service.

YOUR MUSEUM IS NOW OPEN AGAIN

OUR OPENING HOURS ARE THE SAME, EXCEPT THAT WE ARE CLOSED ON WEDNESDAYS IN OCTOBER DUE TO STAFF SHORTAGES.

THE HOLBY CITY AT 20 EXHIBITION CONTINUES UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR, WHEN OUR NEW EXHIBITION NORTHERN HEIGHTS - THE LINE THAT NEVER WAS WILL BE LAUNCHED.
