Haslemere Educational Museum was founded in 1888 by the eminent surgeon Sir Jonathan Hutchinson to display his growing collection of natural history specimens. After two moves it found in 1926 a permanent home in Haslemere High Street, in the town of Haslemere, Surrey, England.

The museum won a national award in 2012 and is an independent charity. It contains nearly half a million specimens, artefacts, papers and images.

  • lovely couple of hours spent here, kids were fully engaged with the items on display. plenty of social distancing measures in place.  more »
  • We always head straight for the dinosaur roar exhibit which you enable by putting your hand inside a dark hole! Still popular even though my youngest is now 10. Also, interesting local exhibitions...  more »
  • Very good for school trips, wouldn't just go there though. Shop could be less expensive. Could have tour guides? Fun though. Firework were absolutely mesmerising though.  more »

  • Fab museum for kids of all ages. Very hands on exhibits, a fun room for them to play and colour and friendly, relaxed staff. It doesnโ€™t have its own parking but you can park in the main pay and display car park in the town. The museum is only a few minutes walk away.
  • An excellent day out. Lots to do with little ones. Tons of fascinating exhibits and activities. Great fun ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘
  • Great little museum with a diversity of displays from Egyptian mummies to local geology. Make sure you go in the gardens where there are beautiful dew ponds and peace.
  • Surprisingly good collection, maybe a bit dated, but what can you expect from a local educational museum. The temporary exhibition was definitely worth it!
  • The museum has an impressive collection ranging from an actual mummy to butterflies and even an active bee hive. The volunteers on site are more than happy to answer any questions or provide assistance if required. Great place to bring children and a very cheap activity to keep you busy for a couple of hours.
