Welcome to Abingdon County Hall Museum

Abingdon County Hall Museum’s aim is to present the history of Abingdon and the surrounding locality in the most informative, exciting and accessible way possible. We will continue to develop the museum in line with visitor comments and town activities with the intention to create exhibitions combining importance to the locality, people, educational significance and interest for as broad an audience as possible.
