River & Rowing MuseumHenley is best known for its regatta, held here since 1839, so it's entirely fitting that the River and Rowing Museum is also housed at Henley. The place is clearly so proud of its riverside location that it even includes the name of the river Thames in its title. This museum has everything to do with messing about on the river: some well known boats from the Olympics are on show alongside trading cargo ships; there are displays on the history of rowing and how the river was a vital route for trade; there's even a permanent exhibition dedicated to that toad and his water dwelling companions in the Wind in the Willows. It's not just what you can do on the water that gets some attention, it's what lives in and around it too in the wildlife that thrives there. In addition to the permanent exhibitions there are frequently changing temporary shows that draw on a special topic from the found fragments that litter the river banks. Interactive, hands-on activities are the most entertaining; one, for example, involves dressing up and feeling the rush an athelete gets from standing on an Olympic podium. Gold!
