Amersham Museum is part of a restored half-timbered Medieval hall house with a new extension at the front. A National Heritage award-winning museum, it can be found in the centre of Amersham's historic High Street. Exhibits range from archaeological finds, the 16th century Lollard Martyrs, local crafts of lace and straw plait making, to many aspects of local life, including reminders of the town's World War II activities through its naval connection and barrage balloon making. A touch-screen presentation form the Museum's growing photo archive is now available. The well stocked herb garden provides a relaxing area in which to sit. Walks around Amersham start at the Museum at 2.30 pm on Sundays from Easter to the end of October
