Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Windsor & Royal Borough Museum needs your help. We want to create a museum collection that records life in the Royal Borough in the early twenty-first century. Who are the people of the Royal Borough? How do we spend our time? What will we be remembered for?

We want to collect various items and stories that relate to events and experiences that are important to residents of the Royal Borough.


Collecting Your Covid-19 Pandemic Memories

2020 was a year like no other for people all around the world. The Covid-19 pandemic and responses to it have changed our lives quickly and without warning. What will we remember of this extraordinary time? How will future generations understand it?

The Royal Borough Memory Box is a project run by Windsor & Royal Borough Museum for people who live and work in the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead to collect and share memories of the pandemic and lockdown.

With your help, Memory Box will build a collection to reflect our community experience, from the highlights of special times with family, to the lows of our darker and sadder days. Together we can tell our shared story and help future generations to understand what we have experienced.

You can contribute photographs, videos, artworks, stories and any items that represent your personal experiences of life in lockdown. Browse through the photographs of some of the submissions we've received so far and read through the Collecting Tree Ideas document for further detail.

Please use the Submission Form on this page to donate your memories to Windsor & Royal Borough Museum.

Email museum@rbwm.gov.uk if you have any further questions.


The death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh contributed so much to life in the Royal Borough. We have heard lovely stories from residents about their encounters with His Royal Highness which we would like to capture for posterity.  

If you live or work in the Royal Borough, you can share your memories with us through our Royal Borough Memory Box. We would like to capture your stories of meeting His Royal Highness Duke of Edinburgh or his significance to your life, as well as any relevant photographs or letters / poems you might have written. 


Exhibition - Ten Years of Our Museum

We have installed a socially distanced exhibition on the Corn Market outside Windsor Guildhall to celebrate Ten years of the Museum being in the building. It showcases objects and stories from our collection to give residents ideas about the types of items they could donate to help future generations learn about current times.


You can visit the exhibition anytime, and if you do go along, we would be grateful for your feedback (please see below).
