Amersham’s Mobile Museum 

We’ve just launched our Mobile Museum! The Mobile Museum is a mobile exhibition, housed in a retro-style vehicle, which tells the story of Amersham in the 20th century. The Mobile Museum showcases a range of mixed media work, including oral history, film, photographs, documents and objects. It also includes details of artwork created by local people through the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s supported ‘the People’s Story of Amersham’ project.

Lots of local groups helped to create the Mobile Museum including Little Chalfont’s Knit & Natter group, our Chiltern Juniors Art Club, our Young Curators group and older people in our reminiscence groups. It was launched on Easter weekend, Saturday 20th and 21st April.

20th Century Playlist

As part of our project we are creating ‘Amersham’s playlist of the 20th century’. We are asking people to tell us about their favourite songs and musicians of the 20th century and the song that most brings back memories. We will then create our 20th century playlist for people to listen to in the mobile museum. Please fill in the form below to tell us about your favourite music.
