“Maeldune” is the Saxon spelling of Maldon and means “a cross on the hill”.

There is always much to enjoy at the Maeldune ….

We are the proud custodians of The Maldon Embroidery providing talks and information on the magnificent 42ft display to reveal the story behind the embroidery featuring the Battle of Maldon and Maldon History to enhance our visitor’s experience.

 Visitors to our Exhibition Hall during the year are able to view and enjoy a variety of work from local artists and members of local groups, including photography, paintings – contemporary, watercolours, pastels, prints, fused glass and jewellery art work, multi media and much more.  Our exhibition changes every three weeks.  For more information visit our exhibition page.

 The Maldon Society’s  Oral History Listening Station provides a fascinating and rare opportunity to hear local real life stories, told by the people themselves – do come and try it for yourself!

 Our displays from The Maldon and Burnham on Crouch museum feature artefacts and, new for 2019, clay pipes found locally.

 Our Gift Shop is full of unique and unusual craft items from our wonderful local craftspeople.

Entry is Free, we are open Tuesday – Saturday 11.00 to 4.00 throughout the year.
