The Salisbury Museum tells the story of south Wiltshire - an extraordinary landscape which has been the cradle of unparalleled human achievement for over half a million years. The museum's world-class collections include internationally important finds from Stonehenge and the oldest gold objects ever found in Britain. The temporary exhibitions explore objects, art, culture and lives – all joined through the centuries by this unique landscape.
What You'll Get
Visit: The Salisbury Museum, 65 The Close The King's House, Salisbury SP1 2EN England
The Salisbury Museum is based in the King's House, a medieval grade I listed building opposite of Salisbury Cathedral. The museum's displays include nationally important archaeology from Stonehenge, fine art including watercolours by JMW Turner and impressive local history.
In the stunning new Wessex Gallery of archaeology you can discover 500,000 years of history. Exhibits include the famous Amesbury Archer and the Pitt-Rivers Wessex collection of archaeology. The other galleries reveal the history of Salisbury through costume, fine art, everyday objects and ceramics. The museum also has an exciting programme of temporary exhibitions - for example later this year John Constable's Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows will be on display at the museum.
The museum has a vibrant family events programme, often with family trails over the school holidays. The cafe (open 10am - 4pm Monday to Saturday) offers wonderful home baked meals with outdoor seating that has unrivaled views of Salisbury Cathedral.
