Plans have been unveiled to relocate Watford Museum to the refurbished Town Hall, thanks to a grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. 

Watford Borough Council is inviting residents to have their say on proposals to transform the town’s Museum and Heritage service.

The funding will go towards relocating the museum and updating the exhibitions in the building as part of the council’s plan to revitalise the town hall area.

The museum’s new home at the Town Hall will use the 1930s committee rooms bringing the town’s history and community stories to life.

Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, said: “These are exciting plans for Watford Museum and we are so grateful to the National Lottery players for making this a reality.

“The relocation of the museum and heritage service opens up a wealth of opportunities to create a museum that gives visitors a really exciting and memorable experience.”

The Watford Museum and Heritage project is part of the council’s Town Hall Quarter Programme, which aims to revitalise the area around the Town Hall.

The council is holding public consultations, which includes CGI images of what the museum might look like. 

The consultations will be held at: 

  • August 10 to 18 - 10am to 5pm at Watford Museum
  • August 19 - 12 noon to 5pm at Herts Pride in Cassiobury Park
  • August 22 to 26 - 10am to 4pm at Cassiobury Park Hub
  • August 29 to September 1 - Big Sports held at Town Centre Event Space
