Welcome to the Museum of Richmond

For centuries Richmond has been a centre of fashion and the arts, as well as home to several of Britain's monarchs. The Museum celebrates the rich heritage of Richmond, Ham, Petersham and Kew and, through the exhibition and education programmes, all other areas of the borough.

The colourful displays span from mediaeval 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.
