We enjoyed our visit to the museum, great value and if you go in the Summer you can sit in the little garden. The staff were so lovely and informative.

I have just got back from a guided walk which is held on Sundays at 2.30pm. What a fantastic tour of local Amersham, the walks are between 1 ½ to 2 hours long and cost only £2.50 each.

Staff are extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble, they take tie to explain everything. The building itself is fascinating, being Medieval and the oldest in Old Amersham. Fine collections of local interest. Well worth a visit.
