The Champs Chapel Museum of East Hendred is a local village museum housed in the former Chapel of Jesus of Bethlehem, built in 1453 by Carthusian monks and now commonly called Champs Chapel, at East Hendred in the English county of Oxfordshire (formerly in Berkshire).

Exhibits in the museum trace more than a thousand years of the history of East Hendred, a history which is closely interwoven with that of Oxfordshire, Berkshire and England. As of 2008, Champs Chapel Museum is open on Sunday afternoons (April to October) from 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm. Admission is free, although voluntary donations are welcomed. The museum is operated entirely by volunteers from local East Hendred Heritage Trust.
