Welcome to Wycombe Museum

Inspiring learning and discovery through our furniture-making specialism, our imaginative collections, and as a vital community charity.
Known to many as The Chair Museum.

Collections

Wycombe Museum looks after a collection of over 20,000 items recording the stories of High Wycombe and the surrounding area.
Furniture, social history artefacts, art, photographs and more. 

A Digital Community Exhibition – July 2020

Together with the rest of the UK, Wycombe Museum went into lockdown on 23 March due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Museum staff worked from home to begin with, then most were furloughed. Keeping in touch with our volunteers, one of them suggested we do an exhibition of local experiences of lockdown. This became possible with funding from Arts Council England, and we appealed for photos of lockdown through social media.

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.
