The Leatherhead Museum of Local History is in Hampton Cottage, a timbered 17th Century house at 64 Church Street, Leatherhead KT22 8DP. The building was purchased by the Leatherhead Museum and Local Heritage Trust in 1976 and after extensive restoration, it was opened as the Museum in 1980.

It is the Leatherhead & District Local History Society’s HQ as well as its showcase for many items of local interest. The Museum's 25th Anniversary year was in 2005. In 2010 the Trust merged with the Leatherhead & District Local History Society as a single charity.
