Mill Green Museum and Mill, in the tiny village of Mill Green between Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, is a little gem with loads to offer for a fun day out. You can explore the fascinating 300 year old water mill, restored to full working order. Visit the local history museum in the old mill house, bring a picnic or have a tasty cream tea on summer Sunday afternoons, from Easter to September. We are open all year round, Tuesday-Sunday plus bank holidays. We warmly welcome families and groups. There's always something new to see as we change exhibitions regularly. Every school holiday there's lots of things for children to do. We also have a lively events and activities programme.

A little tucked away but so close to major routes this museum is excellent. Best to visit when the water driven mill is in action and flour is actually being milled. The adjacent museum is fairly compact but crammed with local material. We last visited on a special event day with historic cars being displayed and it was, to say... More

Mill Green Museum and Mill is slightly hidden away, but well sign-posted (actually next to A1(M)). There is limited car parking on site, but plenty on the street outside. The museum and mill cost £3.50 to visit (children free), but you can visit the grounds and café without paying. The museum is quite small. In the first room we tried... More

Visited here today with a friend and four children aged 2,3,4 & 8. Most importantly the children enjoyed their visit, though we struggled to stretch the visit to two hours and that was including lunch. There is enough parking spaces for 5 cars including one disabled space, though there are other spaces on the road adjacent to the mill, outside... More

This is ideal for old and young alike. I took my grandchildren there and we all enjoyed it. sometimes they play games, everybody I have spoken to have never complained. The history is very interesting, better to go on a nice sunny day, more enjoyable especially with young children.

I was at a loose end before a meeting so popped in here. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The museum is just about ok but the renovated mill is worth seeing. You can even buy their own flour.
