Brentwood Museum

Welcome to our brand new website!   We appreciate your interest and support.

The Brentwood Museum Society was founded in 1977. It acquired its present building in 1985 and was first regularly open to the public in 1989. In 1993 the Museum was granted formal registration with the Museum and Galleries Commission, one of just a handful of Essex Museums to gain such recognition, and all the more remarkable since it is staffed entirely by volunteers. In 2008 the Museum was granted Full Accreditation status by the Museums Libraries and Archives Council.

If you would like to be involved, the Brentwood Museum Society welcomes new members.

You are of course also welcome as a visitor simply to come and look around the Museum!
