About Us

Harlow Museum & Walled Gardens is a historic and significant place with over 1000 years of captured history. This private estate formerly had a Manor House with many outbuildings, one being the stable block where the Museum is located today.

The museum’s gallery spaces share and highlight the history of the town from the Iron Age to the present day. The site is also home to three historical gardens set across two acres of lush green space. There is a new discovery around every corner, family activities and a seating area perfect for picnics.

On your visit you can find out about Harlow’s influential people, uncover the amazing finds excavated from Harlow’s Roman Temple site, learn the history of the changing culture of the Parishes, see a unique collection of historic bicycles, discover how Harlow became a New Town and much more!

The Museum has at least 4,000 artefacts, the majority of which have been acquired by public donation, mainly from Harlow Town residents.  The objects are representative of the personal, social, domestic, and industrial development of the town and its inhabitants.
