Salisbury Museum is the home of the award-winning Stonehenge Gallery, the Monkton Deverill gold torc, the Warminster Jewel and the famous ‘Amesbury Archer’. Displays include prehistory, the Romans and Saxons, history of Old Sarum and Salisbury (with the renowned Giant and Hob Nob), the Pitt Rivers Collection, pottery, porcelain and Wedgwood in beautiful 17th century rooms, a pre-NHS surgery, costume, lace and embroidery. There are pictures, including Turner watercolours, throughout the museum. Special exhibitions all year. Membership benefits available. A friendly museum with wonderful collections in a splendid Grade I Listed building. Designated as having archaeology collections of national importance.

The Museum is preparing for exciting change. Last year it secured a £1.8 million Heritage Lottery Fund grant to update the archaeology galleries allowing the museum to show its superb collection to its full potential. However this means that there is no longer access to the archaeology galleries. The new gallery will re open in Spring 2014
