Gunnersbury Park is the perfect place to watch the seasons change. Now that summer is here you’ll find roses in bloom, lakes sparkling and majestic cedars offering plenty of shade.

Inside the Museum, you’ll find stories about prominent local people, both from history and the modern day. Our fun and interactive galleries will guide you through our shared local history and our helpful and knowledgeable team will be on hand to answer all your questions.

Our new What’s On Guide is out now, showcasing our exciting range of events including music, fascinating talks and craft activities for all ages. Come into the Museum to pick up your copy or browse the events here – keep an eye out for events linked to our Georgian theme!
