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/
We hope you have all had a restful festive break. Thank you all for your support and engagement during what was challenging year.
Unfortunately, following recent government guidance, we have closed the Heritage Centre for the foreseeable future. We will provide an update when possible.
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.
