Previous Events

GB0HMG Museums on the air - 19th - 20th & 26th - 27th June

The museum is located in the Mark Hall area of Harlow and its collections are housed within the stable block of the former Mark Hall Manor – visited on three occasions by Queen Elizabeth I.

Since its temporary closure during 2020, the museum has reopened with new exhibits. The ‘Movers and Shapers: the Harlow Makers’ gallery focuses on individuals who have made a difference in Harlow and beyond, while the ‘New Town’ gallery explores Harlow post WWII to more recent years.

The John Collins Cycle Collection includes everything from one of the first bicycles made in England to the iconic Raleigh Chopper – and everything in between!

The site is also home to the beautiful 17th century walled gardens, which earned a Green Flag Award in 2020 and make a perfect picnic spot in the spring and summer.
