Plenty of good exhibits and even more interesting as most come from Wiltshire. Friendly staff. £4.95 admission is worth it and value for money.
The Iron age section could do with some brighter lights.

We have now been able to fix the lights in the Iron Age gallery. The gallery was opened in 1968 and to repair the lights we had to replace more than we expected and it was considerably more difficult that we expected.

I am sorry that the lights weren't all working when you visited.

Where to start, I stayed at the black swan and I asked the gentleman that worked there if there was anything around town that mite interest me, he reply with a few things including this place.
And I'm really glad he did, what a fantastic place to go too, with so many things to see and learn, I really enjoyed the art there, some excellent drawing that really court my eye.
