There is a car park opposite the Library/Museum building (Riverside, Thames Street) that has disabled parking bays. There are no steps to contend with from there to the building.

Also the multi story carpark (above us) has various places on the different levels for disabled parking, lifts are on levels 3, 5, 7 to reach ground level. When you get to ground level turn left out of the lifts to the shops area. Turn right at Argos. You will see the Library in front of you. Go in there, bear right and walk to the end of the library where you will see the Museum doors. If the Thames Room is open you will find staff in there on the left. (See below for times.)

Please see our map page for photos of the way into the multi story.


This is the new mural at the entrance to the Museum.
It was done during the Shut down so the Museum is not open and that's why it is in darkness.
Please see the photos below to look at the inside of the Museum.

Please go straight in and look around. As you can see the doorway and the aisle are all wide.

The Thames Room is open during the following times when we have volunteers on duty, on a Wednesday, Friday (2 - 4pm) and Saturday (1:30 - 4:30pm) (First Saturday of the month only, (11am - 4:30pm).)

The Library building. The museum is located at the right end through the library.

We have again revamped the website for the 40th Anniversary of the Museum. Please take a look at the Queen's Award page, the Accessibility page, the photos of Staines page and the Lino page. There is also a map page showing how to get to us, people are always saying to us that they didn't know that we are located through the Library, on the map page we show photos of our building related to everywhere else around us.

We also have NEW pages showing the Exhibits that are supposed to be in the Thames Room, however they can be seen on here while we are closed, due to the Coronavirus.
