About

Holby exhibition
Mar 2020
Travelled across from Bristol especially to see the exhibition, myself and my daughter love Holby an we were not disappointed the displays were fabulous, the inside information on the show was lovely to read about, my daughter and her boyfriend even got to dress up in scrubs an do a mock operation on the maniquin that was there. Staff were also very helpful an informative they told us where the outside scenes for Holby were filmed so we could have a little look.

Hi Stacey - glad you enjoyed your visit. We prefer to think the Library is outside the Museum!

Visited the Holby City exhibition. It was small but had a huge amount of information in. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and obliging when it came to photographs!

This museum may be tiny, but it's crammmed with interesting information on the area. Every few months the exhibition changes,and it's free! I have yet to see the current one about how the local Film Industry was saved but intend to go soon, every temporary exhibition they've had so far has been well worth a visit. The last (the Railways) was excellent with imaginative displays and interactive exhibits. My visiting Australian grand-children loved it too.
Only open on certain days, inside the library on the 2nd floor, so check opening hours before you go.
Staff are enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. You don't have to be a local to enjoy it and find it interesting, so do pop in!

THE MUSEUM
Dec 2018 • Solo
What a great little place to visit, changing themes over the year, to show history of the town and area. Needs more space, but always helpful staff to advice you as you look around.

Enthusiastic staff and good quality exhibits/videos
Feb 2018
This is a train museum revelling in train transport since the line opened from Kings Cross and arrived at Borehamwood and Elstree. Interviews with staff who moved out of the city and have manned the local platforms for years. Perfect for an hours enjoyment on a grizzly wet Saturday.

Well worth a visit!
Feb 2018 • Friends
This small museum is a little gem. The current exhibition focuses on the anniversary of the Midland Railway arriving in Elstree, and tells how it was instrumental in bringing film studios to the area.
As well as being informative, entertaining and educational, the museum is blessed with staff/volunteers who offer a warm welcome, and clearly enjoy what they do.
If you're in the area, don't miss it!
