Harlow Museum & Walled Gardens is a significant and historical place with over 1000 years of captured history. The museum’s gallery spaces highlight the history of the town from the Iron Age to the present day. The site is also home to three historical gardens set across two acres of lush green space. 

The Museum has at least 40,000 artefacts, the majority of which have been acquired by public donation, mainly from Harlow Town residents. There is a new discovery around every corner, family activities and a seating area perfect for picnics.
