Re-opening Amersham Museum!

We were delighted to re-open the museum to visitors at the end of August. At the moment we are only open at weekends, 12 noon to 4.30pm. Adults £4.50, free for children, Friends and annual pass holders.

 

We are committeed to keeping you and our team safe during your visit. We have introduced the following measures to achieve this:

  • Limited the number of people in the museum. We are asking visitors to pre-book their visit via our website.
  • Ask you to observe social distancing. We ask that you wear a face covering in the museum.
  • Provided hand sanitisers for your use on entry and throughout the building.
  • Installed a screen at reception and provided face coverings for our team.
  • Ask that you pay by contactless or by card.
  • Introduced a new cleaning regime.
  • Removed interactive exhibits and the contents of our discovery boxes.
  • Trained our staff and volunteers in the new procedures.

Although we have had to remove some interactives that children enjoyed playing with, we are offering all children visiting the museum a free trail sheet instead.

 

If you would prefer to visit the museum when no one else is there, we continue to welcome pre-arranged groups outside normal museum opening hours, during the day or in the evening. Contact emily@amershammuseum.org for more information.

 

Join a Guided Walk!

Our popular programme of guided walks also resumed in August. Tudor walks will take place every Saturday until the end of September and town walks every Sunday until the end of October.

£5 for adults, free for children and Friends.

 

For both walks pre-booking via our website is essential. Each group is now limited to five people, led by a museum volunteer guide. Each guide will be wearing a visor and will ask separate groups within the walk to maintain a 2m distance from each other. The minimum number of bookings required for the walks is three people. If fewer than three people are booked on to the walk by midday the Friday before the walk, it will be cancelled and you will be notified on the Friday.

 

Amersham Old Town walks provide a fascinating insight into the history of the town, its inhabitants and its development. Here you will see many of the details of the town that you may never have noticed before. The walk is approximately one hour and a half in duration. The walks leave from the museum at 2.30pm on Sundays.

 

The Tudor walk enables you to learn about life – and death – in 16th century Amersham – food and drink, clothing, health and the Lollards martyrs. These walks are led by a guide in Tudor costume and start from the museum at 2.30pm on Saturdays.

 

We welcome pre-arranged walks for groups outside normal museum opening hours, during the day or in the evening. Currently each guide can take a maximum of five people, but more than one guide can be organised for larger groups. Contact emily@amershammuseum.org for more information.

 

We hope to see you in the museum or on one of our walks again soon.
