Vestry House Museum, originally built as a workhouse in 1730, holds a wide range of objects on the history of Waltham Forest. There is a reconstructed Victorian parlour, a police cell, domestic life gallery, and exhibits on local crafts and industry housed in the Grade II listed former workhouse. It also houses the Bremer car which, built in 1892, is one of the oldest British-built petrol driven cars. Archives and the Local Studies Library for the London Borough of Waltham Forest are housed in the same building, available by appointment only.
