Spelthorne Museum, founded in 1980, is a volunteer-run museum which showcases the history and archaeology of the Borough of Spelthorne.
The archaeology collection is one of major importance in Surrey. The Museum displays include: Prehistoric Spelthorne, Roman Staines, the Domesday Book, Gunpowder Plot, Georgian and Victorian Spelthorne.
The displays in the Elmsleigh Room (open 6 days per week) are arranged in chronological order and tell the story of Spelthorne from Prehistoric to Modern times. Stand-out features are the reconstructed head of a Neolithic woman from Shepperton, fascinating finds from Roman Staines, and the London Stone dated 1285, which marked the limit of the jurisdiction of the City of London over the River Thames at Staines.
The Thames Room (limited hours) contains further displays including the 1738 Fire Engine, Roman Shop and Victorian Kitchen, the museum shop and temporary display area.
