Discover a world of hidden treasures in one of the oldest museums in Britain.


This award-winning museum explores the archaeology, natural history and social history of north-west Essex and the wider world.


There’s something of interest for all the family, our collections include: Ancient Egypt, Archaeology, Ceramics and Glass, Costume and Textiles, Decorative Arts, Geology, Furniture and Woodwork, Local and Social History, Natural History, Toys and World Cultures.  From stone axes to Samurai armour, Saxon riches to shields, spears and swords. Take the opportunity to see a glove given away by Mary Queen of Scots on the eve of her execution, and meet an Ancient Egyptian Mummy.


At our family-friendly museum children can excavate in the archaeological sandpit, meet Wallace the Lion (from the famous poem ‘The Lion and Albert’) or explore the natural history discovery centre.


With a rolling programme of special exhibitions, activities and events throughout the year, there’s always something new to see and do!


Pic nic in our grounds next to the ruins of the 12th century Walden Castle or, walk to the centre of the medieval market town where you can shop, eat, relax and explore.


There is a small car park and access for disabled visitors.
