The Museum could be overlooked during a visit, it is where one gains admittance, and in the rush to visit the Abbey pass right through.
Tarry awhile and have a good look round. it is worthwhile.

Interesting for photographic enthusiasts but rather technical for joe public. If this museum is viewed after the Abbey trip then it is not so interesting due to being exhausted from the Abbey and grounds.

This Museum tells you all about Lacock and its history including the pioneer of photography William Henry Fox Talbot, whose birthplace was Lacock and he lived in the Abbey. Also you get to know about Matilda Talbot, the last family owner of the Abbey. There is a shop with books to buy etc. Well worth a visit.

But not great unless you are a keen photographer! Was a bit disappointed. However as there are plenty other lovely things to do in Lacock we just did it to tick the box.
