Wardown Park Museum, shows the visitor all they wish to know about Luton and the surrounding area. The Museum can track the history of the Luton area certainly back to the Saxon times, Luton's Industrial heritage is also well highlighted with both Vauxhall & SKF well documented, I must mention that Luton played a very big part in the evacuation process of children from London in WW2 and this is shown in an area of the Museum downstairs. The Museum itself was once a house and dates back to the 1800's. - it's well worth an afternoon visit. exhibitions change on a regular basis and the Museum is owned by Luton Borough Council.

It is a good museum with an outdoor section of craftworkshops. The park is large with swings etc for the kids. Well worth a visit.

Lots of history regarding the bedforshire area. Saxon and Roman finds displayed well and informative. Often special activities for children during school holidays. There is talk of closing down this museum, which in my opinion would be a shame. Children will also love the old toy exhibition, as to-day most things are computerised, or battery operated.

Interesting museum with lots of different things to see, usually with themes each month. In the middle of a large park, close to the town centre.
