Please note that due to Covid-19 safety measures, the Heritage Collection is currently not on display.

The Lightbox Heritage Collection is comprised of thousands of fascinating historical objects, many of which have local significance to Woking.

This collection was used to create our permanent museum Woking's Story and there are regularly changing 'Local Hero', 'Heritage' and 'Object in Focus' displays. To find out more about these displays, follow the links below.

Other Heritage Collection Displays in Woking's Story:

Oral History
Since the early 1990s, volunteers and staff at The Lightbox have been collecting people’s memories of living and working in this borough. We are currently working on making these memories accessible to the public online.

Woking Living Words
Card players on steam trains, growers of chrysanthemums, parachute makers, laundry workers, taxi drivers and stories of people coming from all parts of the country and corners of the globe – just a few of the themes in a book about Woking's history published by The Lightbox.
