Maldon 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 overn
  • Old shopfronts stocked with bygone packets and tins

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 NOW CLOSED FOR THE WINTER AND WILL REOPEN SPRING 2019.

Admission is £2 for adults and free for children.
FREE admission for all on Bank Holiday Mondays and Heritage Weekends.

You will find the Museum by the main gates to Promenade Park.
