Barnet Museum

The Museum’s collection contains hundreds of artefacts reflecting the history of Barnet and those that have lived there, dating from the Bronze Age to the present day.

There is also an extensive archive, and we are a centre for local and family history research. The Museum focuses on Chipping Barnet, East Barnet, New Barnet, Hadley and the surrounding districts. The Museum opened in March 1938 to house and make available to the public the growing collection of the Barnet Record Society (now Barnet Museum and Local History Society) which had been founded in 1927 to record and preserve Barnet’s history.

The Museum building is an attractive early Georgian house in the heart of Chipping Barnet and part of Wood Street conservation area.
