Tom Brown's School Museum and its collection

Tom Brown's School Museum

Tom Brown's School Museum was originally a school for boys built in 1617 & became a museum in 1984. Located in the picturesque village of Uffington, the museum features exhibits on Thomas Hughes who wrote Tom Brown's Schooldays & Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman who lived in the village. The permanent exhibitions feature the history of the 3,000 year old White Horse & surrounding areas such as Wayland's Smithy & the Ridgeway, together with a mock Victorian Schoolroom and artefacts donated by local residents. The 2023 exhibition explores the extraordinary relationship between poet laureate Sir John Betjeman and his teddy bear, Archibald Ormsby-Gore , or as he was better known, Archie.
