Permanent Exhibitions

In the Guildhall

The Museum is open six days a week with a permanent themed display and also temporary displays on local history.

In Windsor Library - The Story of Windsor

A wall display in the corridor on the first floor of Windsor Library, SL4 1ER, traces the development of Windsor town over the last 1,000 years. It tracks the story of different monarchs and shows original Saxon settlement of Windlesora which is now Old Windsor, as well as the present town which circles Windsor Castle.

We have temporary displays (listed below) in the museum and community libraries.
