A Guide to Visiting
Never been to Chertsey Museum before? Sometimes it can be daunting for children to visit new places. This guide will give you an idea of what to expect when you walk through the doors. You can also download a copy of it .
After the education room you will go through this door to see the rest of the museum.
Our objects are displayed in cases because they are very special and must not be touched. Sometimes we let visitors touch things. There will be a sign to let you know when you can touch the museum objects.
Some rooms have lights that are not very bright. This is because light can cause damage to the objects so they have to be dimmed. There is always enough light for you to see!
We change our exhibitions and what objects are on display during the year. This means that each visit to Chertsey Museum could be different. The following pictures of the museum show how it looks in May 2017, but the objects on display might have changed by the time you come to see us.
When you have finished looking at the displays on the ground floor you can go upstairs to see the other rooms in the museum.
If you are not able to use the stairs you can ask the member of staff at the reception to show you were the lift is and how to use it.
When you have finished looking at the displays on the first floor you can go upstairs to see the rest of the museum.
Don’t forget, if you have a question or need help, ask an adult with your group or the person behind the reception desk!
We hope you enjoy your visit to Chertsey Museum.
