A wonderful museum, not too big but an asset particularly if someone intends to visit Avebury and Cor y Cewri (Stonehenge). This is what every town/community should have, well done to all who are involved with this excellent work. Not only its a museum its has also a huge archive of of local records and documents for all to see,... More

If you have at least 2 or 3 hours to spare, the museum in Devizes is well worth visiting to discover the historical background to the area & to see ancient artefacts related to its early inhabitants. We were impressed with the display of the exhibits. Whilst we were there there was a temporary exhibition related to crop circles which... More

There's an awful lot here to inform on the pre Roman history of Wiltshire. All very well presented. Some other local history as well and stuff about Devizes itself, but we went principally for the ancient history. There was also an exhibition on crop circles which certainly opened my eyes and made me think that perhaps they are not all... More

An afternoon well spent. Good value for money. The crop circle exhibition in itself was worth the visit. This museum gave me good insight into the area and stimulated me to do more research at my leisure. Suitable for all ages. Give yourself at least a couple of hours?

Having visited Devizes regularly for about the last fifteen years, I had never quite made it to the Wiltshire Museum. Although not one of the largest I have visited, the museum was well presented, clean and easily accessible. Exhibits were well thought out and were both general and locally focussed. Of interest on this visit was the temporary exhibition on... More

The museum looks small on the outside, but once inside, it is really amazing. I spent probably two to three hours there, and saw most of the exhibits. The wealth of objects on display is excellent, and the presentation is terrific, professional, and informative. There were some kids' activities, but it was also a very satisfying experience for adults with... More

There are several rooms of exhibits, with artefacts from many different ages. The director is very proud of the Stone Age gold, and has overseen many improvements in recent years. There are working models for children, and an Anderson shelter in the garden - very relevant at the present time.

We didn't have enough time to see the whole exhibition but the 90 mins we spent there were amazing. I thought it would be a small museum requiring only a quick visit and while it is small, there is such a wealth of information to read and understand. Currently, they have a crop circles exhibition that is outstanding for it's... More
