St Albans Museum & Gallery, St Albans

Set over three floors, this newly created state-of-the-art gallery showcases over 2000 years of heritage and contemporary artworks. Exhibitions change regularly and include cutting-edge art installations, together with a vibrant programme of events.

There are beautiful historic spaces to explore such as the octagonal courtroom and subterranean cells, fully restored for future generations to enjoy. The ground floor houses a brand new learning studio, a visitor information point, a gift shop and a café. The first floor offers wonderful rooftop views.

Since being restored, the Assembly Room has hosted a series of immersive installations in partnership with UH Arts. Admire the Georgian architectural detail, ornate chandeliers and double-height ceilings. The image features Susie MacMurray's 'Masquerade', a range of artworks inspired by the history of the building.
