MuseumThe Wiltshire Museum has an international reputation and attracts visitors from all over the world. The archaeology collections, which are among the finest in Britain, trace the history of people living in Wiltshire in a series of galleries - Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman, Saxon, and Medieval. The collections on display include important finds associated with the World Heritage Sites of Avebury and Stonehenge.
There is a large art collection relating to the county with a small selection always on display on the walls stairwells of the museum. In the Art Gallery a programme of exhibitions is drawn from this collection or the works of contemporary artists, while a Temporary Exhibitions area has a constantly changing series of displays.
Other galleries include Recent History, which describes different aspects of life in Wiltshire in more modern times. We currently do not have permanent natural history and geology displays, but we hope to develop new galleries over the next few years.
