The Amelia Scott, in Royal Tunbridge Wells, is a hub for arts and culture and is open 7 days a week! The collection at The Amelia was founded by the Tunbridge Wells Natural History and Philosophical Society in 1885. You will find a library and around 60,000 objects covering local history, natural history, archaeology, fine and decorative arts, and social history. The collections explore different themes such as the High Weald, Subbuteo, science, and politics. In the ‘Story of the Wells’ exhibition you will be able to find out how the town was founded, view an original Pantile, and explore the photographic archives.
