This looks small but is crammed with treasures about the History of Barnet. Really very interesting and educational. Great events and lectures throughout the year.

Lovely little museum - well worth a visit. Now focusing on the Battle of Barnet or the ‘Battle of Three Kings’ of 1471 when three kings of England spent the night in Barnet before the battle on Easter Day.

For such a small place, Barnet has a massive history. If you've never visited the museum and are looking for something to do with your children, here's somewhere to kill a bit of time.
