Opening Hours of the Museum


January 3rd, 2021.

The Spelthorne area has been put into Tier 4 for Covid, which means that we cannot open. The Library will also be closed and so our doors are closed for now.
More updates as soon as we get them. Stay safe.


December 10th, 2020
We are happy to announce that the Staines Library is now open for browsing and they have agreed to open up the Elmsleigh room of the Museum in the normal way. The Thames Room will still be closed, as Volunteers need to work in there. Stay safe!

Please see opening times of the Elmsleigh Room below

Latest News: December 1st
The Museum will be closed again at least until January 2021, due to the latest Shut in/Tier 2 info.
Please check in again to see the latest news. Thanks

This month the Museum will be open on 2 Saturdays.
This week (10th October) and next week (17th October) from 1:30 to 4:30 pm.

Covid protection will be adhered to, with a one way system, and the recommended space needed. Also our Volunteers will be wearing face coverings. We did a trial run a couple of weeks ago and have used the comments from the Volunteers that day to add to our protection for visitors. There is a NHS QR poster there that will allow those with smart phones to scan in to 'Test and Trace' as well. Others will have to sign in.

You do not have to register before coming but we are only allowed 6 people in at a time.

Our current Exhibit in the Thames Room is '40 years of Spelthorne Museum'.

A number of our volunteers are not ready to come in to the Museum yet, but in the coming weeks we hope to have more opening days, with a full schedule running by January as long as everything goes well with Covid.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Please stay safe.
