Amersham Museum has been open to visitors since 1991. In July 2017, it reopened after a substantial redevelopment and expansion into the neighbouring Victorian building. The project enabled the museum to better reveal their medieval building, previously hidden to the High Street. The work also created a new, stunning glass reception space, new exhibition space, a wonderful activity space and new dedicated stores for the museum’s collection..

The displays focus on five key dates in the town’s history: 1580, 1775, 1892, 1939 and 1964. Visitors can find out about the people who lived in the town at the time, the buildings from that era and what daily life was like drawing on the collections, including maps and oral histories.

The museum has a wonderful garden, full of plants with medicinal and domestic uses. Each is labelled to help you find out what they are and what they can be used for.

Amersham Museum is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. The museum is fully Accredited.
