It has collections of fossils and archaeological finds, including objects from Roman and mediaeval times.
The museum is situated in a 15th century half-timbered house in the High Street, with a herb garden to the rear, and covers local history.
In 1993 the museum won a National Heritage Award, in 2001 it was extended at the front of the museum, and in 2005 it employed its first professional curator.
There are lots of fun things to do e.g an interactive photoscreen, Tudor dressing up, children's arts and crafts. We also have a beautiful herb garden which won Amersham in Bloom in 2010.
