Our Museum

The building in Rothamsted Park that previously housed the  Harpenden Sports and Leisure Centre has now been comprehensively refurbished as a cultural hub and  re-named  the  Eric Morecambe Centre.  The Society will be taking a  long term lease of a sizeable area on the ground floor (previously housing the creche) to create the new Harpenden Museum. The Eric Morecambe Centre opened to the public on 16 October 2021, giving an opportunity to showcase some of our collection to visitors taking guided tours. Work on fitting the Museum and Les Casey Archive room will  start shortly but there is much to do 'behind the scenes' before we can open in summer 2022. Updates on progress towards opening will be regularly posted here.
