Our New Exhibit

A new booklet is now available showing aspects of all of the years the War went on. (1914 - 1918)

This Exhibit is located in the Thames Room of the Museum, that is open
Weds, Fri: 2 - 4 pm and Saturday 1:30 -4:30 pm. First Sat of each month
we open at 11 am. until 4:30 pm.
For those who do not know we are located through the Staines library,
just come on in.
The Elmsleigh Room
of the Museum is open whenever the Library is open.
The Museum is devoted to the history of Spelthorne, which includes Ashford,
Laleham, Shepperton, Staines, Stanwell and Sunbury and is the only establishment
of this kind in the Borough. The archaeology collection is one of major
importance in Surrey. The Museum has many permanent and temporary displays.
