The museum is seeking tenders for this exciting new project


In autumn 2022 Amersham Museum began work on the creation of a dedicated temporary exhibition space, to showcase work made by contemporary and historic artists and makers.

As part of this project, the museum is creating new interpretation, which visitors will experience on arrival. This is a direct result of the creation of the gallery; the existing introductory space will become the new temporary exhibition gallery and the new introductory space will move to a room upstairs.

The introductory space will include a timeline, featuring people, places and events that tell the story of the local area. The timeline will be co-curated with local people, including community partners, members of the museum’s children’s art club, our young curators programme and reminiscence groups.

The new gallery and updated introductory space, featuring the timeline, will open in spring 2024. The project is supported by the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust.

“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.”
