A local museum or local history museum is a museum that covers local history. Its collection normally includes objects with a local connection of some sort. Such museums are often small in nature and have a low budget for their running costs. Entry costs are normally low as well.
A local museum covering a city is sometimes called a city museum and a local museum covering a town is sometimes called a town museum.
Local museum Wikipedia
The first suggestion of establishing local museums in Britain was made by William Sharp in the nineteenth century. On the strength of this suggestion he was admitted to the Royal Society.
In Germany, a specific type of local museum is a Heimatmuseum, a museum dedicated to the unique German concept of heimat, a form of local cultural identity.
