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.

We are an independent museum and registered charity, run almost entirely by volunteers. We do not receive funding from local or central government. Donations help support the running costs of the museum and the creation of special projects with community groups, older people and schools. Find out more about how you can support the museum

“Visited Amersham museum yesterday – lovely place, provides many details on the history of the place. Plenty of cute cafes, pubs and shops around also… not difficult to find free parking nearby. ”

“A well-run, informative and interesting small museum on the main street. It’s mostly volunteer-run and they do a great job in keeping it and making you feel welcome…Check out the herb garden too.”
