“good visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

I spent two hours here looking around it is a very nice laid out museum, it was in an old building but it was great to walk around. The Roman section was great. It even had a metal detecting display of finds from Wiltshire.

“Wonderfully Informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

My wife and I spent an hour and a half finding out about the history of the area and would have liked to stay much longer. Wonderful old building, helpful staff and very informative displays. The day was cold and the museum bright and warm - we will be back to check on the bits that we missed. Well done to all responsible for the museum!

“world-beating prehistory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Staggering prehistoric collections, housed in a real quirky old-fashioned museum with creaky stairs and interesting nooks and crannies. There's stuff for kids to do, and loads to learn if you want to understand more about prehistoric Wiltshire. They also have some impressive Saxon and Roman artefacts too. New galleries on the way, but worth the trip to see it now.

“Amazing - a real hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

It is amazing to think that I hadn't heard of and been dying to visit this museum for ages. The collection is incredible - it's diverse and features world class objects and information. It is also a charming place to visit, with an intimate atmosphere and very kind and knowledgeable staff. The admission charge is very reasonable for all that you get out of it. Perfect for those visiting Stonehenge and other similar sites, and for those wanting to learn more about Wiltshire's long and rich history.
