A local museum with collections from the furniture industry and local history.
Wycombe Museum is a family friendly museum that explores the history of Wycombe District and its surrounding areas through hands-on galleries. Famous for its chair collection, the Museum includes ‘The History of Wycombe in 10 Objects’, our Art Gallery, a 1920’s kitchen and changing temporary exhibitions. The museum is located in a Grade II listed house with parts dating from the 1600s and is surrounded by a beautiful big garden which is great for exploring.
Currently our temporary gallery holds a showcase of work on Beer, Bacon Badgers & Bhajis. This exhibition celebrates everything edible and delicious in Wycombe District from Prehistory to the present day. Find out which foods are grown and produced in the area, how table manners have changed throughout history, and all about local specialities such as Bucks bacon badgers and lardy cakes. Lots of hands-on activities for all!
