Letchworth Museum opened in 1914 to house the collections of the Letchworth Naturalists’ Society, since when the Museum has expanded greatly in both size and scope. The Natural History Gallery shows examples of local wildlife in realistic settings, including the famous Letchworth Black Squirrel, as well as displays on the geology of the area. The Art Gallery and Mezzanine Gallery upstairs both house monthly changing exhibitions of paintings, photography and craft. The extensive Archaeology Gallery shows how people have lived in this area for thousands of years.
