Chippenham Town Council are following and responding to the latest guidance on from Government announced on 16 March and with immediate effect are closing Chippenham Museum to safeguard our staff and visitors. We will reopen when it is safe to do so in line with government guidance.
If you have bought a ticket to an event or show in this period, we will be in touch to offer you a refund where relevant, we would welcome your patience during this time. We are working hard to arrange alternative dates for events where possible. All external hire events have been cancelled during this time.
Housed in an 18th century townhouse, Chippenham Museum tells the fascinating story of this historic market town from its prehistoric origins to the present day.
Learn about the town’s development, through its connections to river, road and rail and explore its surprising links to Alfred the Great and Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
See our regularly changing displays in our temporary exhibition gallery or take part in our varied programme of walks, talks, children’s activities and special events.
Chippenham’s medieval Yelde Hall, just a two minute walk from the museum, is also available to visit. Please contact the museum to arrange a visit over the winter season.
