Visit the River & Rowing Museum in its beautiful riverside location in Henley on Thames. The doors of the Museum’s award-winning David Chipperfield designed building open onto the art and stories of the river including the enchanting family-friendly Wind in the Willows, the history of Henley, riverbank wildlife conservation, and the sport of rowing.  The galleries include interactive displays and objects of international significance. The Museum hosts a lively programme of special exhibitions from partners including the Ashmolean, Seven Stories and the V&A, complemented by curator talks and hands-on workshops for all ages. The Museum’s Café terrace overlooks Mill Meadows, and its shop celebrates local suppliers, specialising in children’s books and games, jewellery and craft.
