Details

Located in the old Park Keeper's house, the museum is mostly set out in room settings showing an eclectic selection of artefacts relating to Maldon and the surrounding district. It holds a fascinating collection reflecting the social, domestic and industrial history of the area, and provides a wonderful insight into the town's maritime past with displays describing fishing, sailmaking and Thames Sailing Barges.

The Museum also has an original Pumper Fire Engine from the Victorian era and a Penny Farthing bicycle. In the Childhood Room, children can play with favourite games from times past, and take part in a quiz which relates to items around the museum. A museum shop is available from which books and souvenirs of the district may be purchased.

No booking required.
