About Wycombe Museum
Wycombe Museum is a family friendly museum that explores the history of High Wycombe and the surrounding areas, through hands-on galleries. Known to many as the chair museum, our collection not only spans Wycombe’s furniture-making history, but also includes, art, photography, and many varied artefacts documenting the area’s rich social history.
Wycombe Museum is housed in a Grade II listed building, with parts dating back to the 1600s. We have an on-site cafe and are surrounded by a big beautiful garden, great for exploring.
Wycombe Museum is an independent charity managed by Wycombe Heritage and Arts Trust.
