Support us

We need your support.Chesham Museum is a community museum, run by the community and the support so far has been inspiring.  There are heritage walks, talks, and a host of events to raise money, so people can participate in the museum's success.  We always need volunteers/ stewards and more members.

Here are some of the ways you can show your support.

Make a donation

Chesham Museum is an entirely volunteer-run and independent museum. We rely on your donations to continue to record and share our town's fascinating and diverse history.

If you are a UK tax payer, don't forget to Gift Aid your donation - this will add an extra 25% to your donation at no extra cost to yourself.


Donating objects

We collect all kinds of objects and photographs that are related to Chesham and the surrounding areas.

If you have any objects that you would like to donate to the museum then please contact us with details about the object or photograph in question. Unfortunately, we are not able to take everything in as we are limited by our space so please do speak to us before bringing the objects in.

Please do not bring objects in without the agreement of the curator.

Volunteer some time at the museum

Barbara Richardson (left) & Linda Hadden are two of Chesham's long-serving stewards. Could you spare some time to volunteer?

Volunteer Stewards Wanted:

We are looking for volunteers to steward in the museum.  Stewards welcome visitors, operate the till and generally keep an eye on things while the museum is open to the public.  No experience or special knowledge is necessary as instruction will be given and any enquiries from visitors about artefacts in the museum or the history of Chesham are dealt with by the Curator or our very knowledgeable Volunteer Research Group.  

Stewards work in pairs and hours can be tailored to suit you.

If you think you can help or would like to talk to a member of the committee please email us using the form on the Contact Us page.
