Numerous displays with various photos and items of interest for anyone who wants to learn more about this Wiltshire town’s long, varied and interesting past. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited Calne simply to have a look around & stumbled on this Heritage Centre. The staff were very friendly & the rooms are very well set out with professional presentation of the history of the area! One could spend an hour here very easily

This is a little gem hidden in the heart of Calne.
Lots of history and things to see. The small museum is a treat.
Lots of really good little cafes around to get something to eat.

This visit was to see the art exhibition, which was great. One of the things I like most about the Heritage Centre is it often has new offerings. I hear this year there will be a Samuel Taylor Coleridge exhibit. Am looking forward to that! Thanks to all the volunteers and staff for giving Calne a Heritage Centre to be proud of.

Really interesting place to visit. Took my daughter and we were there for over an hour. Fascinating to learn more about Harris where most of my family worked at one stage.

Visit it!

This small museum is packed with lots of local history. Here you can find out about Joseph Priestley, the man who discovered oxygen while living in Calne, or about the Harris company, a well known factory making bacon products - along with many other facets of the history of Calne.

There are also a couple of exhibitions each year on different subjects, such a local pubs or Calne's twin towns. The current exhibition is on WWI in Wiltshire.

There is disabled access to the building and toilet facilities. Entry is free and while I've visited many times and never been pressured to donate.

Run by friendly volunteers, this heritage centre is worth a visit!
