Rayleigh Town Museum: New Visitor Attraction in Essex
Rayleigh, its People, Places and Heritage
Local History Group 'Rayleigh Through the Looking Glass' have over time acquired a significant number of Rayleigh related artefacts, such as postcards, maps, books, ephemera and much more. These are displayed at a number of regular exhibitions held in the town but they are worthy of a permanent home for all to see, enjoy, and learn about our Town’s history.
The Rayleigh Town Museum will be open to the public from 2pm on Saturday 9th April. Opening times thereafter will be Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm
