This free museum is a great way to spend an hour or so. Currently featuring Georgian history, the exhibits are hands on and interactive. Perfect for families too.

Arranged a group visit which was a total success. Included was a historical walk to include St Andrews Church. This was followed by the museum exhibition about Georgian Chippenham and General tour Totally enjoyable day and will revisit.

Fell into this museum by accident during a stroll around Chippenham. Very good on local history and the development of the town. Just what you want as an introduction to a new place as this was for us. Helpful attendants.

I have visited this museum a few times and have found it very interesting. Free to enter. Different exhibitions every few months. Coming from the area I found it fascinating. Do give it a try.
