Old Exhibits

These are just a few of previous Exhibits that have been on show over the past few years. This page will have photos and information showing previous exhibits we had in the Museum.

We hope to make some online Exhibits from previous Exhibit photos, similar to the 4oth Anniversary of the Museum one that is linked at the top of the page

This Exhibit about Fire Fighting has been on display from February 2018 and will close at the end of July 2018. There were lots of photos of the fire trucks used as well as old photos.


There was also a booklet about the old Fire Engine that we have in the Museum published at the time of the opening, '1738 Fire Engine' is available in the Museum please check here for details.


In 2014 the exhibit was to mark the history of Staines Lino for the 150th Anniversary of the invention of Linoleum and it's manufacture in Staines

Frederick Walton the manufacturer and inventor of Linoleum, with a drawing of the Lino factory in Staines behind him. Ralph Parsons and Nick Pollard put this Exhibit together and Ralph opened the exhibit .

In 2013, this exhibit was to commemorate the Coronation in 1953. Our very patriotic Museum had many Union flags hanging around. It showed how we were in 1953.




All children were given a gift for the Coronation
in 1953. I myself had the blue glass.

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.
