Details

The Museum of Richmond is a registered museum. It was created by local residents, it is an independent museum and a registered charity and is supported by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
For centuries Richmond has been a centre of fashion, the arts and the intellect, as well as home to many of Britain's monarchs. The Museum celebrates the rich heritage of Richmond, Ham, Petersham and Kew and, through the exhibition and education programmes, includes all other areas of the borough.
The colourful displays span from prehistoric times to the present day. It is ideal for family visits: admission is free, and there are always lots of activities to keep children entertained. The Museum is close to the River Thames and to Richmond Green.
