The museum has undergone an extremely sympathetic extension, and a re-organisation of its displays. Well worth a visit for insight into local history, especially if one meets a local helper who can expand on display board information.

This little museum in the heart of the beautiful market town of Old Amersham is a little gem, great for all information on local history, but also lots of fun things for the children to do!

The new museum is wonderful. The exhibits are really well laid out. The mix of very old and up to the 1960's means there are a lot of items that are relevant to some of the people in the town.The volunteers are really knowledgeable and...More
