100 years of Wimbledon History

Until Sunday 10 April 2016

The Museum of Wimbledon’s Centenary exhibiton – 100 years of Wimbledon History. It recounts in mainly storyboard form the history of the Museum from it’s extraordinary setting up in the middle of the first World War by a group of local philanthropists  to the present day. The tale told is a strange one: endless arguments about its location, further arguments about what should go in it, the amazing saga of what happened to the contents during the second World War, how – after it – the Museum rose again like a phoenix and has continued to develop since.
