The East Surrey Museum is a small but highly
attractive museum dedicated to the preservation and display of artefacts and
documents relating to the social history, archaeology and geology of East
Surrey from the earliest times to the more recent past. Conveniently located
in the centre of Caterham, a minute's walk from the station and bus routes,
the museum is manned entirely by volunteers, many of whom have local
knowledge, and is supported largely by donations and a utilities grant from
Tandridge District Council.
There is a small shop where you can buy
souvenirs and a wide range of Bourne Society and other books on local
history. You and your children will receive a warm welcome from our curator
and our stewards, who will be happy to show you around, leave you to browse,
or help with any particular enquiries you might have regarding local
It couldn't be easier to find your way around, but you might
