The Guildford Museum takes a look at the history of Guildford and the surrounding towns beginning from pre-historic times through to the 20th century. With over 75,000 different exhibits, the Museum covers Archaeology, Local History, Needlework and Art. The collection of the museum’s archaeological items began in 1854 with the creation of the Surrey Archaeological Society. Since then it has grown to contain local finds as varied as flint axes, scrapers and arrow heads, Roman coins and religious headdresses, finds from excavations around Guildford Castle, and Tudor artefacts from the excavation of Farnborough Hill Convent. Open Monday-Saturday with no admission charge, the Guildford Museum is great educational fun for the whole family.
