The Museum is again open, with everything intact since the floods almost hit us.
Although the rising Floods were surrounding us here in Staines and everything was put up on blocks and bricks and removed to a safe place we were lucky.
Sorry if you were caused any inconvenience while we were closed but we wanted everyone, Volunteers
and Visitors to be safe.
To Spelthorne Museum
After 25 years in the Old Staines Fire Station, in 2006 a professionally
designed Spelthorne Museum opened with the entrance through Staines
Library, Friends Walk. Close to public transport links and with disabled
parking spaces in the nearby Riverside car park, the premises are fully
accessible for wheelchair users.
Admission is free and all are welcome! Please contact us if you would
like to arrange a group visit or come to the museum during alternative
hours. There is a museum shop stocking local history publications, postcards
and small collectables.
The Museum is divided
into two rooms -
Room, which covers the history of Spelthorne, from the Ice
Age to modern times. One display case 'Window on Spelthorne' has
a different display each month.
The Thames Room,
which has a Victorian kitchen layout, a replica Roman shop, the
1738 parish fire engine and the Museum shop and is open when Volunteers
are on duty.
