  • Great museum centred on the history of Bedfordshire and it's most famous things.
  • The Higgins punches way above its weight for a museum in a small town. The current exhibition of Picasso prints is well worth a visit. Since the refurbishment of the buildings the presentation on local archaeology is really quite impressive and exciting. Even the gift shop is noteworthy - low on "fragile tat" and high on genuinely interesting bits and bobs.
  • It is a great place to vist
  • Local history in a nutshell. Very interesting
  • Love visiting The Higgins - every time we go we discover something new, and there are lots of great child-friendly spots around the building.
