We have again revamped the website for the 40th Anniversary of the Museum. Please take a look at the Queen's Award page, the Accessibility page, the photos of Staines page and the Lino page. There is also a map page showing how to get to us, people are always saying to us that they didn't know that we are located through the Library, on the map page we show photos of our building related to everywhere else around us.

We also have NEW pages showing the Exhibits that are supposed to be in the Thames Room, however they can be seen on here while we are closed, due to the Coronavirus.
