Following a complete renovation, Chelmsford Museum reopened in 2019 to take you through Chelmsford's history, from the Ice Age, right through to the present day. From the chance to see a mammoth, or watch a princely Anglo-Saxon burial, to finding out what used to be on your street, the museum has something for everyone.
See the Story of Chelmsford from Prehistory to present day, Chelmsford's Potters such as Grayson Perry, Bright Sparks and the Natural World. And you can also take one of our trails in the wonderful Oaklands Park, where the museum is located.
Chelmsford Museum is also home to the Essex Regiment Museum
The museum offers a great free day out, as well as one off events, talks and workshops.
Entry to the museum is free of charge.
