The Museum of Richmond aims to bring the history of Richmond and the surrounding area to life in exciting and varied ways for people of all ages and from all backgrounds. We offer a growing programme of talks that can be booked by groups of 10 or more, often for groups who cannot come into the museum. Groups we have recently visited include FiSh in Barnes and the Richmond Afternoon Forum.
Feedback includes: “I have just got back home and would like to thank you for your interesting and informative talk this afternoon. Every one of the members was fully engaged with your subject, and passing around the artefacts you had brought with you helped to stimulate conversation.”
Talk topics currently include:
Old Palace Lane
The Story of the Royal Star and Garter Home
Highlights of the Textile Collection
30 Years of the Museum of Richmond
Richmond and the Railway
The Royals and Richmond Palace
Toys Through the Ages
Medicine in Richmond

The Museum of Richmond offers reminiscence sessions on a variety of topics. These sessions use objects from the museum’s handling collection to stimulate group discussion and shared experiences. Recently we have worked with the Caring Café in Sheen. Handling toys from the past meant clients shared memories of childhood as well as resulting in impromptu skipping and games of skittles!
“Just an e mail to say thank you very much for a lovely session with the Victorian/Tudor toys on Saturday. The feedback from the clients was very positive , they very much enjoyed the afternoon as did the staff & volunteers.”
Usual opening hours: Tuesday to Fridays, 11am to 5pm and Saturdays, 10am to 4pm. FREE entry!
Limited Access Period: There will be no lift access to the Museum from Tuesday 10th October to Saturday 9th December inclusive. The Museum will be open as usual during this time but access will be via the stairs only. This is while a new lift is being installed.
