A free-entry museum, gallery and reference library situated in the heart of Lyndhurst, the New Forest Heritage Centre is dedicated to sharing the history and traditions of this diverse and beautiful area. With a gift shop and café on site, it’s a great place to start your New Forest journey.
For on-line access to some of our collection please visit https://nfknowledge.org/
You can also search seven of our catalogues at https://www.newforestheritage.org.uk/library/
In line with government guidance, we have closed the Heritage Centre for the foreseeable future.
Further to the announcement on 23rd February, and subject to further guidance, we are working towards a 2 step re-opening
Monday 12th April – reopening of our shop
Monday 17th May – reopening of museum and café
We look forward to welcoming you again later in 2021.
We can run our free entry Museum, Gallery, world class Library and Education Service only with the help of donations from lovely, generous people.
