Museum in the Park
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
- Cinema memorabilia - Maldon once had two cinemas.
- Items from long lost local industries such as Sadd's Joiners
- A model of the Maldon East Railway Station
- A lovely old fire engine
- A baker's oven
- Old shopfronts stocked with bygone packets and tins
There is not enough space to display everything, so the displays change annually.
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 1pm to 4pm on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
You will find the Museum by the main gates to Promenade Park.
