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 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. Visit our changing exhibition programme, join a guided walk, take part in an activity session, or wander through our medicinal herb garden.
