Elmbridge Museum's display case in Cobham Library is home to a menagerie of local animals.

This display is the result of a project undertaken by Elmbridge Museum in partnership with Royal Kent Primary School. Year 2 children explored works in the Museum collection by Denise and Rosemary Wren and took inspiration from local potters to create their own mini-exhibition.

The children's display will include 2D and clay works inspired by local wildlife, just as the Wren family had done before them.

From this project Elmbridge Museum hopes to inspire the Year 2 class about the rich historic and cultural significance of their local surroundings, as well as sparking an interest in museums that will stay with them.

2017 is the UK-India Year of Culture. To celebrate this year-long festival of cultural events, Elmbridge Museum has opened its stores and carefully selected all things orange, white and green. By recreating the flag of India through objects in its collection, this display will show the rich variety of objects Elmbridge Museum holds, and allow visitors to explore rarely-seen artefacts in a new way.

Walton Library is hosting Elmbridge Museum’s latest display – a brief overview of swimming and swimwear in relation to Walton-on-Thames. Starting with the formation of Walton Swimming Club, the display has original club memorabilia and hand-knitted swimsuits, as well as archive photography which shows how styles and fashion has changed.
