The Maidenhead Heritage Centre is celebrating its 20th birthday with a party on Saturday afternoon.
The museum opened in 1993 as what was originally a six-month experiment.
Organisations including the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Trust and The Chamber of Commerce have helped the Heritage Centre survive for 20 years.
Fran Edwards, who has worked at the centre in Park Street for 10 years said: "As an independent charity it always amazes me that they have stayed open for all this time and that it just keeps getting better."
The Heritage Centre is a museum for Maidenhead and surrounding villages and is open from 10am to 4pm, Tuesdays to Saturdays.
Drop by on Saturday for a slice of cake and a drink between 11.30pm and 3pm.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
