Chesham Museum

Charity description

Chesham Museum logo
HI I'm Laura Collins a Trustee of Chesham Museum and we need your support. Chesham Museum is a community museum, run by the volunteers from the community and the support so far has been inspiring. We organise heritage walks, talks, and a host of events to raise money, so people can participate in the museum’s success. Unfortunately Chesham Museum is currently in storage. Whilst we work through this transition to find new premises we continue to raise funds so that we'll be in a great position in the future to get our collection back on view for the towns people and visitors alike to learn and enjoy our heritage.

Chesham Museum is a community organisation founded in 2004 in the former stables of a public house “The Gamekeeper’s Lodge’, and relocated in 2009 to 15 Market Square, Chesham until it had to go into storage in June 2017.
The museum was conceived and founded, and is maintained, run and financed, completely by local volunteers, and by their joint fund raising activities.
The museum aims to educate visitors about the rich history of Chesham and its past inhabitants. Our collection primarily deals with things that are associated with Chesham, but also the outer-lying areas: Asheridge, Ashley Green, Ballinger, Bellingdon, Chartridge, Hyde Heath, Latimer, Lee Common and Ley Hill. With a unique history of social reform and industry, Chesham, population 21,000, is the fourth largest town in Buckinghamshire.
