The River & Rowing Museum is one of the UK’s leading independent museums.

This stunning Museum is situated in the picturesque town of Henley on Thames and housed in an award-winning building, designed by the acclaimed architect Sir David Chipperfield.

Located on the banks of the river, the Museum explores the River Thames, the international sport of rowing and the town of Henley.

The Museum hosts a lively programme of temporary and visiting exhibitions, working with partners such as the National Portrait Gallery, the V&A and the Hayward Gallery in London.  Working closely with organisations in their area, the Museum has recently opened a Community Gallery which showcases a wide variety of local projects.

With four permanent galleries dedicated to Rowing, Rivers, the work of British Artist John Piper and the history of Henley on Thames, the Museum is also home to the magical Wind in the Willows exhibition which brings to life the much-loved story with 3D models, lighting and music.

There’s a delightful Café with a terrace overlooking Mill Meadows, and a shop specialising in children’s books and games, fashion, craft and local produce, including fine wines, gins, honey and chocolates. The Museum welcomes visitors of all ages and is fully accessible to wheelchair users.

The constantly evolving calendar of temporary art and photography exhibitions and a year-round calendar of nature trails, craft workshops and family days, ensures there is always something new to see and do.
