Redbourn Village Museum


Redbourn Village Museum is an independent local history museum, archive and family records centre. The Museum is located in the old Silk Mill House on Redbourn Common and was opened in May 2000. The Museum exhibits a range from Stone Age times to the present and includes medieval priory remains, a trades and industries section and items from the extensive collection of the late Ann Skillman, once a resident of the village. There is also valuable cine film footage and photographs of the village, past and present, as well as images of Redbourn families, matched to census records. There are objects for children to handle and identify and a selection of costumes for dressing up. A wall hanging embroidered by villagers for the millennium and a commemorative album and handcrafted signed replica cricket bat made especially for the Redbourn 900 celebrations in 2010 bring the collection right up to date.
