Preserving Histories. Sharing Histories. Inspiring Communities
The Dacorum Heritage Trust (DHT) is the Accredited Museum for the area of Dacorum. However, unlike traditional museums with public galleries, it exists as a museum store with visiting by appointment. Due to this fact, the staff and volunteers at DHT have to think quite creatively about ways to take objects and stories out into the community, in order to successfully share our local history.
DHT is based in a converted fire station in Berkhamsted where it houses in excess of 130,000 artefacts relating to the history of the Borough. The collection is varied and includes paintings, photographs, documents, archaeology and textiles as well as many local and social history artefacts. It covers a wide time period from Neolithic times (around 6,000 years ago), through to the present day and gives a wonderful insight into the long history and culture of the Dacorum area. https://www.facebook.com/DacorumHeritageTrusthttps://www.instagram.com/dacorumheritage/https://www.youtube.com/user/DacHeritage/videoshttps://twitter.com/DacorumHeritage
