Thank you for your review, albeit less positive than we would have liked! We take your point about some of our displays, we are a (very) local museum, with displays of local interest, so perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea. We hope you spent some...More

A superb local museum with a variety of interesting exhibitions. Currently featuring Masterworks by Emigré Artists from the Ben Uri Collection, which is fabulous. The museum has a lovely, small shop and the volunteer stewards are delightful and friendly.

A great little museum in the heart of Bushey Village. Set over 2 floors, the museum documents the social history of Bushey from artists to industry, from peace to wartime. A well organised and run museum with friendly staff. Like art? Pop in definately!
