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 AT 10

See a working model of the railway station in 1900, weigh some sweets in Hansons, see the Village Hall as it was, and enjoy a stroll down memory lane via our celebration of 10 years and 15 exhibitions.
