From Market Town To Metro-Land

Discover Amersham’s History

December opening hours

We are open Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 December.

We are closed during the week beginning Monday 5 December.

Our final weekend opening before Christmas is 10 and 11 December.

We then close for the winter, reopening in February 2023.


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.




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
