The Museum of Richmond is housed on the second floor of what was once Richmond’s Town Hall. On the first floor is a reference library and toilets which were today out of order; on the ground floor the two small rooms which comprise the Riverside Gallery currently displaying an excellent exhibition of works by some of the members of Richmond Printmakers. Judging by those chosen to exhibit most of them are women and assist in explaining the multifarious techniques involved in printmaking itself. I particularly liked the saucy linocuts of Sue Ribbans and the exercise prints of that saintly sounding cross-dressing Eileen St. John.

Lots to look at and study in the display cabinets particularly the model of old Richmond Palace. A good outline of the history of Richmond.Also excellent videos of the buildings for anyone interested in architecture. Good , to then try spotting the different buildings and their style of construction while exploring the town and its surroundings. All the displays are well presented and objects chosen with care. A number of the local characters who lived through either of the two World Wars are also made vivid by the recollections of those who knew them. Staff helpful and keen.

The museum does present a history of the town but in a form that is difficult to follow. The exhibits are cramped into a small space and are poorly presented. The museum is housed on the second (attic} floor that can be reached either by stairs [difficult to manoeuvre between first and second floor] or by a lift. The lift was not working on the day we were there.

Response from EsmeL2757, Manager at Museum of Richmond
Responded Oct 25, 2019
Dear Keith, We are sorry that you found your visit disappointing. We are an independent charity trying to make the best of the space that we have. We are hoping to redisplay the galleries and if you have any suggestions on how we can improve we would love to hear them. Please get in touch by emailing us with your ideas: info@museumofrichmond.com We have been having some troubles with the lift for a while as the Council, who run the building, are having trouble with the contractor who is supposed to be maintaining it. We are hoping it will be back in action soon. Best wishes, The Museum Team

A small but delightful museum run by a charitable trust. It provides a fascinating insight into the varied and interesting history of Richmond, including its Tudor heyday with a favoured royal residence. Special exhibitions are set up every few months, professionally designed to a high standard. The current exhibition commemorates 800 years of St Mary Magdalene's church, and ties in with events and displays in the church. The staff and volunteers make the most of the space on the second floor of the Old Town Hall, but the Museum deserves a site with direct access from street level, which would raise its profile and bring in more visitors.
