Story of Hertford Museum Heritage Heroes
As an independent charity with a free admission policy, we rely on fundraising events and activities to make sure we can keep sharing the heritage of Hertford and East Herts with around 30,000 people each year. Forced closure in March of 2020 left us unable to deliver our highly valued programme and services to our community and schools. Despite re-opening our doors as soon as we were able to in July 2020, the COVID-19 emergency has meant we are still unable to deliver our popular and engaging events, losing around £15,000 in income. If you've enjoyed one of our exhibitions, or free or low cost events for all ages, your child has enjoyed one of our hands on and inspiring workshops for schools, or you've just dropped in and enjoyed our beautiful museum and garden, please consider becoming one of our heroes and making a one off or regular donation.
Hertford Museum aims to collect, preserve and interpret evidence of the history of the county town and surrounding parishes in the District of East Hertfordshire for the interest, enjoyment and understanding of the local community and other visitors. Hertford Museum cares for and interprets in excess of 100,000 objects reflecting the rich heritage of Hertford and 30 surrounding villages. Approximately 30,000 people use our services each year. We provide a wide range of workshops and resources for schools. We work with community groups to deliver ongoing workshops, events and activities for a diverse range of people. We provide at least four exciting, temporary exhibitions each year, covering topics of both local and global relevance. We have maintained a free admission policy since our foundation in 1903. Hertford Museum is a registered charity. Our strategic aims can be viewed here: hertfordmuseum.org/Aims of Hertford Museum.pdfSee other opportunities to help us here.
