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 wonderful example of local history lovingly restored and maintained. Interesting trip for children and adults with activities on site and a real-time demonstration by the lovely Miller with an end product you can purchase to take home.

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...More

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.
