Visitors took the opportunity to join the last Behind the Scenes tour at Letchworth Museum on Tuesday 2nd December. This was the last time we will run the tour so that staff can concentrate on all the tasks necessary to move into our new building next year.

Those on the tour heard about the history of the museum building, the first part of which was built 100 years ago this year.
