Barnet Museum is a local history museum located in the London Borough of Barnet. It is housed in a beautiful 17th-century building, which was initially a private residence. The museum's collection reflects the rich history of the area, from prehistoric times to the present day.
One of the highlights of the museum is its collection of Roman artefacts. Barnet was a significant Roman settlement, and the museum's collection includes pottery, coins, and other objects from this period. The museum also has a collection of medieval artefacts, including a beautiful 14th-century bronze candlestick.
Another essential part of the museum's collection is its artefacts from the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum has a collection of Victorian and Edwardian clothing and accessories, as well as a collection of objects related to the local area's industrial history. The museum also has a collection of photographs, prints, and maps that document the history of the area.
The museum also has a number of temporary exhibitions throughout the year. These exhibitions showcase different aspects of the local area's history and culture, and they often feature objects from the museum's collection as well as loans from other museums and private collections.
The museum is run by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. They are passionate about the local area's history and happy to answer any questions you might have about the museum or the local area. They also offer a range of educational programs for schools and other groups.
