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. Visit our museum shop selling a wide range of souvenirs, books and gifts inspired by the museum’s collections.
Why not also visit Chippenham’s medieval Yelde Hall, just a two minute walk from the museum? Open Friday – Saturday, 10.30am-3.30pm, entry free.
Please note over the festive period Chippenham Museum is open 10am – 4pm on Saturday 22, Thursday 27, Friday 28 and Monday 31 December before opening as normal from Wednesday 2 January.
