At The Lightbox come discover Woking's Story, an interactive museum of the town's history from the 19th Century to the present day.

Here you can listen to people's memories of life in Woking and watch historic films. Two spacious galleries host a huge range of exhibitions, changing monthly.

These include contemporary art from local and nationally famous artists, and loans from major museums and galleries in the UK and overseas.

As well as art and history, there is often the chance to explore science and the natural world, usually with a family friendly theme.

If you're visiting with children (or with your parents!) you'll find plenty to keep them occupied. There are lots of hands-on activities and interactive displays.
