The Museum Explorer Passport will be launching in May!

Friday 23 March 2018

Child holding Museum Explorer PassportThis summer, take a family journey through the rich and exciting history of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire with a free Museum Explorer Passport. Collect yours from a participating local museum and begin your expedition through time, taking in the Roman invasion, the magic of steam railways and the rapid rise of the industrial age. Museums throughout both counties are running holiday events, activities and trails for families. Go along and get your passport stamped at each museum you visit and take part in our challenges. Your child will get a stamp for each challenge they complete and pick up a small prize for completing their challenges.

The passport has been created in partnership with museums across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire with the aim of encouraging families to visit museums. It aims to show families how many great museums there are on their doorstep, providing a range of fantastic, affordable activities during the holidays.

Look out for details of participating museums in the coming weeks.  You can pick up a passport anytime from the end of May and the explorer scheme will run throughout the summer.

We are very happy to launch our new and improved website. The website has been updated with new information and links including social media live links. Several new pages have also been added and these pages mean you can explore the collections available across Hertfordshire as well as discover the services on offer through Hertfordshire’s museums.

We have also updated our leaflets and printed new Hertfordshire Association of Museums posters so keep an eye out for our lovely new materials!

We would like to thank our member museums for their help during the redevelopment and Steve at Brasstacks for his hard work on our website.
