Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

from all the staff, trustees and volunteers at Wiltshire Heritage Museum. We do hope you will be able to come and visit us during 2011.

Opening Hours

The Museum is open Tuesday 28 December noon to 4pm and throughout the remainder of the holiday period. Should we have to close due to adverse weather conditions we will post an item in the blog.

White Horses & Hill Figures

The originals might be covered in snow but why not bring visiting friends and relatives to the Museum to see how they should look!

Came earlier in the year? New items were added to the exhibition during November - check the What's On page of the website for details -
