We popped in pre football match. It’s laid out really well, has some excellent pieces and you can actually interact with a lot of it. Definitely worth a stop if you’re new to the area and want an overview of the history.

Thanks for your review, especially for your comments about interesting things for younger children and the selection of items for sale in our shop. We may be a small museum, but we have a lot to offer. And we are only 15 minutes from Windsor!

There was a lovely interesting lady on the desk as we went in and we spent time looking at the History of Maidenhead and although we aren't from that area it still was very much worth a visit.

It is free to get in but there is a Spitfire simulator upstairs which will cost a little. It is not huge but has some interesting things on display and covers some local history.
