Museums in Essex


Essex has a long and rich history from the earliest tantalising clues about life in pre-historic times to the exciting technological and scientific discoveries of the twentieth century; you can explore it in the museums and galleries throughout the county.


The Museums In Essex Committee (MIEC) were established in 1986. Since then the committee has provided support with projects, training and activities. MIEC also promotes Essex Museums across the region and nationally. Our mission is to “support museums in Essex to raise standards, and make their collections accessible to everyone”.
