About the collection

Welwyn Hatfield Museum Service has over 35,000 objects, photographs and documents in its collections dating from the Iron Age to the present day, representing the history of the Welwyn Hatfield District.

The collection includes domestic & agricultural objects, memorabilia, costumes and textiles, commemorative china, coins, tokens and medals and local archaeological artefacts.

Providing our collections database online is part of an ongoing process to photograph and improve the records for our entire collection. For our small staff and volunteer team this is a painstaking and time-consuming process, which is being done box by box. If an image does not appear or the information available is limited, it is likely that our team havenít got to that section of the collection yet. If you cannot find what you need, require more information, or would like arrange any appointment to view any of our collection items please contact the museum
