Welcome to Spelthorne Museum
April 3rd, 2020:
Here you can investigate what people ate and how food was prepared and stored, understand Roman building materials and look at Roman funerary practices. There is also a fake and some dodgy restoration to find! My favourite model is the fragment of painted wall plaster. It is a very modest piece but tells us how the Roman plasterer and painter went about their work. What is your favourite model? Leave us a like or a comment to let us know what you think.

During winter months there are talks on archaeological or social history items. A quarterly newsletter keeps members up to date.
Members of SALHG receive a quarterly magazine called 'The Museum' which contains museum news, forthcoming events and articles written by members.
Spelthorne Museum is divided into two rooms. The Elmsleigh Room is opened by Staines Library staff and has the history of Spelthorne from the Ice Age to Modern Times. To provide visitors with something different there are two display areas which are changed frequently.
