Chippenham Museum

Free entry, open Monday – Saturday, 10am-4pm

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.
