I visited with a group of friends, who are all 'Ladies of Leisure' now. We arrived thinking we would stay for half an hour but we stayed much longer. The small rooms are full of fascinating artifacts and there were interesting descriptors on the walls. However, it was disconcerting that there were items exhibited that we still have in cupboards...

There is no charge to visit this centre. There a number of rooms highlighting different aspects of the history of the town. It is a good place to visit when you first arrive in the town.to get an understanding of its history

A really enjoyable museum. A great history of this super town. From the original castle, to WW2, to a neat little classroom.

A wonderful centre portraying life in the town during various stages. Particularly liked the school room and the Anderson Shelter. What was particular good that it was free!

This is a real gem of a local history attraction in a fantastic house dating back to 1345 - and it's free! There is a very wide range of time periods covered and some amazing artefacts. From records of local events and examples of items used in everyday life, to mementos of national significance, everything was well presented. There is... More

They also had a competition for younger people to take part in whilst looking around the building. This has to be a must visit place for anyone passing through Henley, it is... More

This free Heritage Centre is in a delightful old building & is crammed with interesting material relating to life goneby in Henley. Obviously a work of love by the friendly volunteers.

Several rooms fitted out with genuine artefacts donated by local people e.g. a school room. Well worth a visit, it is free to enter but donations are very welcome and necessary to keep this lovely old house, which has been turned into a local museum, in good order.
