From Market Town To Metro-Land

Discover Amersham’s History


Our Museum

Based largely in a medieval hall house, Amersham Museum explores life in the town’s past through intriguing objects and local stories. Sit at the Tudor dinner table, relax in the 1930s living room, or listen to stories in Ron Haddock’s 1960s record shop. Investigate our timeline display from fossils to dolls houses, and medieval tiles to historical maps. Visit our changing exhibition programme, join a guided walk, take part in an activity session, or wander through our medicinal herb garden. Click on this link to download our 2024 leaflet.
