Maidenhead Heritage Centre
Maidenhead Heritage Centre and Museum was founded in 1993. The centre presents the history of Maidenhead history from Roman times to the present. It collects and preserves artifacts, photographs, documents, and sound recordings, to illustrate local history. The Maidenhead Archaeological & Historical Society, founded in 1960–1, collaborates with the centre.
In December 2006, the centre and museum moved to a permanent location in Park Street. Special exhibitions are organized and presented, for example one on Maidenhead Bridge, the main historic road bridge to the east of the town, in 2007, marking its 230th anniversary. It was accredited by the UK Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) in 2009.
