If you love Amersham Museum and believe in the importance of sharing our local history, leaving a gift in your Will to the Museum will help provide an enduring legacy for future generations; it is an incredible gift that you can make to both the Museum and our community.

We do not receive any government funding so we rely on people like you to help secure our future. We understand that you may be particularly inspired by aspects of our work so you can decide how you would like the Museum to use your gift. Perhaps you have a particular love of the building or would like to see future generations immerse themselves in our education programme. Or would you like to see our current and future collection conserved or more exhibitions at the Museum?  Tell us where your interests lie or simply leave a gift to the Museum and we promise to use it wisely and where the need is greatest.

Making or changing your Will is quite straightforward but we recommend you consult your solicitor when doing. There are various ways in which you can decide to make a donation – you can leave a fixed sum, a percentage of your estate or a specific gift – for example an item such as a painting or an item of historic interest.  It is entirely up to you.

We appreciate that a Will is a very private matter but if you would like to ask a question or discuss leaving a gift to the Museum with us, please get in touch with our Director, Briony Hudson by email at [email protected] or call her on 01494 723700.  She will be delighted to help you. Alternatively you can download our legacy leaflet here which gives you more information.

Thank you

“Enjoyed our visit to this wonderful interactive museum where you are positively encouraged to touch things!”

“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.”

“Enjoyable film and television location guided walk around Amersham hosted by Amersham Museum – here are the Sun Houses on Highover Park and further up the hill is High & Over.”
