In addition to this website, the museum has a virtual museum, powered by Facebook (you don't have to be a member of Facebook to see it).

This contains many annotated images and over 100 short videos. These last 3-5 minutes and are very varied in content.

They tell you about selected parts of the history of Godalming and what can be found about that history in the Museum.
