We’re in the middle of Rickmansworth in Basing House, between the library and Watersmeet theatre - ten minutes' walk from Rickmansworth Station (Metropolitan Line and Chiltern Railway), and just a stone’s throw from the car parks in the town centre and the stop for No 320 and 336 buses.
A collection of information on the story of each of our communities. They were put together by members of those communities, drawing on their local knowledge and love of the area.
More than just 'funny old things'! You'll find a collection of memorabilia of all sorts - items to prompt memories of World War 2, the cashier's booth of a local butcher's shop, mementos of the Swan, the old coaching inn in the High Street... and regularly-changed special exhibitions.
We have a number of images of the district from the past; a growing set of oral history recordings (to which you can contribute) of memories from World War 2, old film footage and more recent video recordings of many events in the area.
... our new interactive displays!

As we re-open we'll advertise our hours here.
