The museum has a series of loan boxes, for use by community groups, supported housing and care homes. Their themes include the 1960s, traditional toys, a night out in the 1950s, shopping and working lives. We can facilitate a session for you or you can borrow the box to run the session yourself.

This autumn the museum launched a new project to support older, isolated people, with the support of the Santander Foundation, Tesco Bags of Help and Chiltern District Council. The ‘Age Friendly’ project will develop a range of innovative, creative programmes aimed at reaching more vulnerable members of the local community. Emily Toettcher, the museum’s curator, explained “we want Amersham Museum to play a greater role in the wellbeing of the community, in addition to it being a place for enjoyment and learning”.
The project includes work in the museum and in the community working with older people, including those suffering from dementia, in local care homes and supervised residential facilities. Activities include object handling, reminiscence work and arts workshops. For more information, contact Jane@amershammuseum.org
