Saffron Walden Museum

Saffron Walden Museum

Saffron Walden Museum opened in 1835. With wide-ranging collections, from moccasins and mummy cases to mammoth tusks and Wallace the lion, it still contains much to "stand awhile and admire". This award-winning, "friendly, family-size museum" is open 363 days a year. Collections cover the human and natural history of north-west Essex, from ancient times to the present day, and many other wonderful objects from the wider world.

The Museum is set in an enclosed grass meadow, suitable for picnics, with a small car park and access for disabled visitors. It stands beside the ruins of the 12th century Walden Castle.

The Museum is planning a new Heritage Quest Centre to house its reserve collections and serve as an outreach base. Use the Heritage Quest Centre link on the menu on the left to find out more about this exciting and innovative project.
