THE MUSEUM IS CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR REFURBISHMENT.
Although we are closed, we still are happy to accept donations and answer enquiries. Please e-mail us at email@example.com
The Museum is run by the Wimbledon Society. It is in a lovely listed building in Wimbledon Village, 22 Ridgway, just at the top of Wimbledon Hill Road.
The Museum is on the first floor, unfortunately the only means of access involves climbing two flights of stairs. The Museum is small and seating is not usually provided for visitors. We are happy to arrange special visits to the Museum at times when it is not normally open, for those who would like to take their time climbing the stairs, or would welcome the provision of a seat at every case, or a quieter environment in which to view the displays.
Our address: Museum of Wimbledon, 22 Ridgway, SW19 4QN
The nearest tube/train station is Wimbledon and the museum is a few minutes walk up Wimbledon Hill Road. Buses 93, 493 and 200 pass close by and there is street parking (free on Sunday) within a short walk. For London Transport information visit www.tfl.gov.uk
We have a range of excellent local history books on sale in the museum which are available via the online bookshop.
In addition to our permanent displays we have a programme of regular special free exhibitions. You can also explore our individual collections online.

Our treasured collections relate to life in Wimbledon from about 500,000 years ago right up to the present
We are very happy to welcome members of the public who wish to consult our collections for research, have questions about the history of Wimbledon, would like to bring in items for identification or wish to offer items for the Collections.
Please contact us in advance if you wish to arrange an appointment to consult the Collections, or bring in an object for the Collections or for identification, at a time when the Museum is not open to the public.

We will also do our best to bring the Museum to you. We would be delighted to provide an illustrated talk about the Museum for local groups who are unable to visit the museum building.
