The Windsor & Royal Borough Museum is a registered/accredited, family-friendly and accessible small local history museum in a Grade 1 listed building completed in 1689. Come and discover the history of the town and the area. Listen to the stories of people who lived and worked here.

The collection relates to the history of Windsor, and other towns and villages across the Borough in East Berkshire. The museum has on display a selection of some of the many objects from the collection including a100,000 year old mammoth’s tusk, pre-historic tools, Bronze Age, Roman and Saxon artefacts, together with objects and ephemera from before Victorian times up to World War II, the 1950s and the present day.

The museum is staffed at all times and supported by a team of volunteer stewards, and also The Friends of the Windsor & Royal Borough Museum.  Please ask staff on duty if you require curatorial advice

Tours and groups welcome.

You can also view a 360 virtual tour of the Windsor Guildhall and the Museum.  Here you can see the grand Council Chamber, and the Ascot Room where Prince Charles and Mrs Camilla Parker-Bowles were married.
