Welcome to The Museum of Wimbledon
The Wimbledon Society’s free museum for everyone. The Museum is closed while we rethink and renew. Find out more about our exciting refurbishment programme in Wimbledon Stories
Our treasured collections relate to life in Wimbledon from about 500,000 years ago right up to the present.
If you want to donate something or have inquiries, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will also be collecting local items relating to the pandemic. Please save any leaflets and other material until we are open again. Are you keeping a diary? Would you entrust it to us to save for future generations?

Due to the current pandemic situation we are unable to run our usual full programme of walks, talks and visits. However we have created a number of free online talks that you can attend from the comfort of home. Where possible we record these for later viewing. Click the link below for more details.
A Wimbledon Museum for the 21st Century. We are planning to close the Museum in 2021 for a complete refurbishment, and the creation of brand new displays.
The Museum is run by the Wimbledon Society and receives no public funding. We are enormously grateful for all donations to help with the costs of running the Museum, or specifically towards our refurbishment project.
