Amersham Museum

Amersham Museum is an award winning museum located in a 15th century building in the heart of old Amersham.

A bit about us

Based largely in a medieval hall house, Amersham Museum explores life in the town in 1580, 1775, 1892, 1939 and 1964. Sit at the Tudor dinner table, relax in the 1930s living room, or listen to stories in Ron Haddock’s 1960s record shop.

Throughout the museum there are opportunities to explore Amersham’s past through maps, photos, objects and documents.

There are hands-on activities, discovery boxes with handling objects and multimedia tablets which provide access to the museum’s wider archive.

Visit our changing exhibition programme, join a guided walk, take part in an activity session, or wander through our medicinal herb garden. Facilities include an accessible toilet, baby changing and a lift with access to the activity space. 

We welcome pre-arranged group visits to the museum outside normal opening hours, during the day or in the evening. An introductory talk can usually be arranged if requested. We can also arrange a guided walk - or why not combine the two?
