Egham Oddities: The Egham Museum Podcast

By Egham Museum
Egham Museum has a collection that's quirky and quite frankly odd. So if you like talking about museum objects and some of the more curious items that lurk within their collections, this is the podcast for you!

Established in 1968, The Egham Museum is an independent, community museum and registered charity reliant on volunteers. Through our exhibitions and innovative use of our collections, we provide our local communities and visitors a centre of life-long learning dedicated to raising awareness, sharing knowledge and promoting the enjoyment of history.
