Housed in the Edwardian former Park Keeper's Lodge by the main gates of Promenade Park the aptly named Museum in the Park houses a collection that reflects the social, domestic and industrial history of Maldon and the surrounding district over the last two centuries, and beyond.
The museum showcases various aspects of Maldon's history including
There is not enough space to display everything so the displays change annually. This season features a fascinating new exhibition entitled “Stones, Bones and Old Pots”. You can see a fossilised mammoth tusk and the skeleton of a porpoise from the River Blackwater
There is also a small shop with souveniers and new and second hand books for sale. Younger visitors will love the free children's quiz which encourages exploration of the museum.
The Museum is open 2pm to 5pm on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 11am to 5pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays until October 29 .
Admission is £2 for adults and 50p for children.
FREE admission on each Bank Holiday Monday.
Admission for children during school holidays is FREE.
You will find the Museum by the main gates to Promenade Park.
