Surrey Heath Museum is a local museum telling the stories of the area's past - covering the Stone Age, Iron Age, Roman times, Medieval Surrey Heath, Early Transportation, Highwayman, Coaching Inns, The Royal Military College, the Area's Agricultural and Horticultural past, the Development of Camberley and much more.
It opened in the 1930's and the original collections were donated by the first curator George Poulter; since that date they have grown and cover both the areas unique past and the modern history of Surrey Heath.
The Museum has a permanent exhibition gallery telling the story of Surrey Heath, and a temporary exhibition area featuring an array of changing exhibitions. An active events programme, for all ages, is held throughout the year.
We hold a large collection of reference material which can be accessed by the general public for research purposes. Please contact us to book an appointment if you would like to use this service.
The Museum is situated in between the council reception building and Camberley Library, on Knoll Road. (Just look for the stone steps.) All of which are to the left of Camberley Theatre.
Our nearest car park is Knoll Road Car Park, 3 minutes walk away, which is just next to Camberley Theatre. There are some 30 minute parking bays just outside the museum, although availability is often limited.
