  • Very good musuem, very informative. I learned a lot here and I recommend the musuem to learn about woodworking and the importance of High Wycombe and Buckinghamshire of the production of chairs for Britain. The person running this was full of information, knowledge and you could see his passion for woodworking.
  • Very interesting talk on the history of chairs in High Wycombe. Lovely turned wood art and other art in the gallery. Well worth a visit.
