Vestry House Museum presents the history of Waltham Forest. Attractively located in the Grade II listed Vestry House, the Museum can be found in the historic area of Walthamstow Village. Originally built as a workhouse in 1730, Vestry House has since been a police station and a private house, before it opened as a Museum in 1931.

Vestry House Museum houses Waltham Forest Archives and Local Studies Library. It is also home to an award-winning public garden.
