We are open from Wednesday to Sunday, 12 noon until 4:30pm. You can pre-book your time slot or drop-in.

Our Museum

Amersham Museum reopened in summer 2017 after a major refurbishment and expansion. The museum’s medieval hall house is now more clearly visible for visitors to see and enjoy. The new museum displays explore life in the town in 1580, 1775, 1892, 1939 and 1964. Complete your visit with a wander through our wonderful herb garden, which is packed with plants used for medicinal purposes.

Support Us

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
