The barn is super and then the story of the stone finds is very fascinating. Adults and kids will both enjoy

Alexandra Keiller is a very small museum located in a 17th century built stable barn, right next door to Avebury Manor. It predominantly contains information about the history of the Avebury stones and the person who saved them from destruction (apparently the locals used to...More

As National Trust members we had free entry, however we would have been disappointed if we had paid the museum entry. Not as impressive as the Manor House, gardens and the stone circle.

The Museum is in the stable block near to the Manor House. It contains the collection of Mr Keiller who restored the Avebury Stone Circle. While it is interesting and informative it is small. Takes about 20-30 minutes to visit.

This is a small but interesting museum that tells a good story about the area and it's neolithic inhabitants and doesn't try to be more than it is. As part of a visit to the entire complex of Avebury it fulfills its role well.

Keiller's work was not without controversy, but I thank him every time I go to Averbury. I'd not visited the museum before but had only read of his work. You need to place to give some context to what you see outside. My only grip...More

This museum gives some background to the history surrounding the Avebury Stones it’s small and won’t take long to visit but has some fascinating finds.

Welcoming and knowledgeable staff and likeable displays. Lighting could be better - trendy, but not fully able to see writing!
