Harlow Museum is located in the former Mark Hall stables, linked with the Mark Hall Manor House – visited on three occasions by Queen Elizabeth 1 and her retinue.

It is surrounded by the beautiful Walled Gardens which were originally the kitchen gardens for the great house and the famous families which lived there.

Our four main Galleries tell the story of Harlow through social history and discoveries over four periods: from recent times and the story of how modern Harlow was designed and built, through the Victorians, Stuart and Tudor times, reaching back through the middle ages to the remarkable Roman finds in the local area

We also have regularly changing temporary exhibitions in Gallery 5 and we have a great programme of talks and lectures for history enthusiasts.

Family friendly with lots to see and do!
