Welcome to the British Schools Museum

Changing learning, changing lives.


There is literally no other museum like the British Schools Museum in Hitchin. The 1837 Monitorial Schoolroom is the only one of its kind left in the world! Then there are our 3 other historic classrooms, the Headmaster's House and our wonderful displays and exhibitions based upon the extraordinary collection of 47,000 objects!

In our truly interactive museum you can be sure that
200 years of heritage will add up to hours of fun for all!
