The Mobile Museum
Amersham’s Mobile Museum
We are currently working to create a Mobile Museum! The Mobile Museum will be mobile exhibition, housed in a retro-style vehicle, which tells the story of Amersham in the 20th century. The Mobile Museum will showcase a range of mixed media work, including oral history, film, photographs, documents and objects. It will also include 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 are helping 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 will be launched on Easter weekend, Saturday 20th and 21st April.
The Mobile Museum will travel to fetes and festivals in the local area as well as care homes and schools. If you’re interested in the Mobile Museum attending your event, please get in touch: email firstname.lastname@example.org
Support for the Mobile Museum has come from the National Lottery’s Heritage Fund, the HS2 Community and Environment Fund, Amersham Local Area Forum through Amersham Decides, Chiltern District Council, Amersham Action Group and the Friends of Amersham Museum.
Name our Mobile Museum!
We are making a vintage style van that will travel around the local area displaying the history of Amersham and the people in it. We are holding a competition for people to come up with a name for the Mobile Musuem.
One entry per person and the name has to be no more than eight letters long so that it fits on a standard number plate. If you win this competition you will win tickets for you and up to three friends for Pennfest 2019. So get creative as our deadline is 27th of March 2019!

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.
