We went with 3 young chldren but were disappointed to receive a cold welcome and the children's activity that week was not well led. It would have been a waste if I had not guided the children- not only my own, but others too.

What a treasured and cherished town Amersham is. The Museum shows it off to great advantage with it's ancient walls and beams, hands on displays and delightful medicinal garden. My grandchildren loved playing with the traditional games. Bowles and bagatelle especially.

Dear Peter,

It's fantastic to hear that you and your family enjoyed the museum. Over the next couple of months we will be introducing some new interactive tablets with some really engaging content for kids and big kids alike, and running some great half-term family workshops, so please do come again in the future to see what more we have to offer.

All the best,

Amersham Museum

Having lived in Old Amersham for 8 years, I was very excited to visit the new museum on the High Street which opened a couple of weeks ago. The modern building and its exhibits are very well laid out and the old building is stunning. The garden is also lovely with lots of herbs and an interesting privy at the back. We decided to do the 2 hour guided walk which was fascinating and very informative. Highly recommended if you are a local and worth a visit if you are coming from further afield.

Tucked in amongst the houses and shops of Old Town Amersham is this lovely little museum with an interesting insight into the local history.

We have lived in Amersham for over 35 years and have visited the museum on many occasions and it seems to get better every time. Thanks to all that keep it going.
