Egham Museum

A small but welcoming local history museum on the first floor of the 18th Century Literary Institute building in the heart of Egham High Street.

The Egham Museum is an independent community museum located in the Literary Institute in the High Street, fondly known as The Lit.

Serving the communities of Egham, Egham Hythe, Englefield Green, Thorpe and Virginia Water, we explore the history of the local area from its earliest settlers in the Neolithic and Bronze Ages to the present day.

Visit the Museum to discover what led King John to seal the Magna Carta at nearby Runnymede, how Thomas Holloway made the fortune that established his namesake College and Sanatorium and which Le Mans winning cars were built on the Causeway to Staines.

Opening Times:

   Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10am to 4.30pm

   Saturdays, 10.30am to 12.30pm
