The Mayor of St Albans, Councillor Salih Gaygusuz, opens the door of the museum for the last time, after having been introduced by the Portfolio Holder, Councillor Annie Brewster.
The Museum of St Albans
The Foundation Stone was laid on 20th July 1898, on land given by Earl Spencer, and it was erected using "red bricks of local make" [made by Jacob Reynolds of Bernards Heath]. It was opened in November 1899 and originally referred to as the County Museum.
In addition to good permanent displays the museum ran special exhibitions on local topics.
During the summer of 2015 the exhibits were packed away prior to a move to a new site, in the former city Town Hall, in 2017.
The doors of the Museum finally closed on Sunday, 20th September 2015. LinkExternal link
The site will be converted to residential use and the plan is that the building itself will be retained.
