Welcome to emsworth museum
|Welcome||Current Exhibitions||Opening Times|
Welcome to the website of the Emsworth Maritime and Historical Trust, who administer and run the Emsworth Museum. This small museum is totally volunteer run and funded.
The Museum is dedicated to telling the story of Emsworth; its people, industries triumphs and tragedies. Famous people have lived and visited the town, and it became famous, or infamous, for the incident of the poisoned oyster that killed the Dean of Winchester. The oyster industry boomed in the late 1800s but was destroyed by the one incident; the story is told in its own small gallery within the Museum. P.G. Wodehouse will be forever linked to Emsworth through his stories of Lord Emsworth and the Empress of Blandings, which grew in his imagination while he lived in Emsworth.
Please browse through our website and we hope that it will encourage you to visit Emsworth Museum and hopefully stay in our wonderful little town.
