A warm welcome, and, because we belong to the Art Fund, free admission to this jewel of museums. It takes you on a journeyfrom very ancient pre-history - around 10000 BC - up to and beyond the bulding of nearby Stonehenge..Terrific

We stayed in Devizes and this short walk to the museum from the town was worth it. So much to see whilst there, we had art exhibitions to see too. It has a cafè too for a drink and slice of cake.

This would have been worth visiting if it only contained the fabulous 6.000 year old jadeite hand axe that was my favourite artefact, but the museum was bursting with great stuff, and informative displays about sites in the local area, and life here through history....More
