The Windsor & Royal Borough Museum is a local history collection of over 10,000 artefacts, which has been built up since 1951. It is a varied and remarkable collection including prehistoric tools, Bronze Age, Roman and Saxon artefacts, maps, textiles, books, paintings and prints together with objects and ephemera from before Victorian times up to World War II and the 1960s. This has been supplemented in recent years by Saxon and bronze age archaeological artefacts, the Clewer Collection and content from the oral history project strand of the HLF funded ‘Beyond the Castle Walls’.
The museum is managed as part of the local authority, within the Libraries, Arts and Heritage Service and part of Adult & Community Services. It has responsibility for the safekeeping of collections, providing accessible services, exhibition development and public display, as well as ensuring that heritage services are promoted and brought to life for all sectors of the community. This helps to strengthen the Borough’s sense of place and contributes to the preservation of local memory and the health and well-being agenda for the Royal Borough.
