Chelmsford Museum tells the story of the county town from the Ice Age to the present, including new displays on the more recent history, and festivals and music. There are additional displays on natural history, art, glass and pottery, as well as a temporary exhibition programme and a popular live beehive. A new extension opens in January 2010 and includes Bright Sparks, an exhibition about Chelmsford’s industries.
