A superb and most informative history of Amersham town. A hands on approach which my grandchildren loved. Staff were so enthusiastic and eager to involve us and were happy to answer our questions.

Very interesting but the time line is very confusing and not particularly well laid out . A shame as a great deal if money has been spent to revamp the museum recentlyMore
