Poor visit sadly with the reception desk unmanned, staff nowhere to be seen, not an awful lot to do if you can’t pay to get in due to lack of staff. Shame as could be a nice little afternoon out

Harlow museum isn't very large, but it's well laid out and provides an informative walk through local history. If the weather's nice, the walled gardens outside are particularly pleasant. All in all, good value at only £2 admission.

The museum is quite small but has some very interesting objects to look at, Roman coins, old fashioned bicycles, 40s, 50s & 60s washing powder boxes etc. The walled gardens are beautiful when the sun shines & the smell of lavender fills the air.
