Dacorum Heritage is the Accredited Museum for the area of Dacorum. However, unlike traditional museums with public galleries, it exists as a museum store.
Have you ever held a 6,000 years old Neolithic axe-head, looked closely at samplers dating from 1880 or measured yourself up against the wheel of a penny-farthing? These objects are all stored at The Dacorum Heritage Trust’s Museum Store in Berkhamsted.
Come along to the Museum Store to learn more about the objects used and owned by people in your area. We are confident that from our collection of over 120,000+ artefacts there will be something to capture your imagination.
Our tour not only gives an overview of Dacorum Borough’s history, spanning over 6,000 years but will also give you a taste of the activities we do to help conserve your local history.
Your place on our tour must be booked in advance. Please note that due to space restrictions tour parties are restricted to a maximum of 8 people.
Please also note we have a steep staircase, which is the only access to the upstairs storerooms. This may not be suitable for all. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to place your booking. Once you have received a confirmation email, your place is booked.
