Welcome to the Museum of Wimbledon

Whether you live in the area or just have an interest in our rich local history, we would like to introduce you to a wealth of resources available at your fingertips.

To find out more about the Museum of Wimbledon, its origins and objectives, go to the about section. Of course the best way to enjoy the museum is to visit us - we are open every weekend from 2.30pm until 5pm. In the meantime you can gain an overall impression of our permanent exhibitions which are on view by exploring the website further. Like most museums, we only have the space to display a fraction of our items, so feel free to follow your own train of connections through the individual collections. Another way we can display more of our extensive catalogue is through a programme of special exhibitions, so please check out what is on at the moment. Recently we have also started to build a new library of oral history where you will be able hear firsthand accounts of life in a bygone age from senior Wimbledon residents.

The museum does not receive any outside funding, so why not find out how you can support us in our mission? We are also always on the look-out for new additions to our collection. We equally rely on income from sales of the many fascinating titles available through our on-line bookshop. If you have any thoughts or questions, including about our schools and community programmes, please contact us and we will get right back to you. This website is continually being developed so we would equally like your comments on areas for improvement.


We are very happy to welcome members of the public who wish to consult our collections for research. Please contact us in advance to arrange an appointment at a time when the Museum is not open to the public.

The Norman Plastow Gallery

After many months of planning and sheer hard work, an "unusable" space in the Village Hall has been transformed into a wonderful gallery. The gallery was officially opened on 1st March 2012 and holds regular exhibitions throughout the year. Details of the Museum's exhibitions can be found in the Special Exhibitions section.
