A must see for those with an interest in Archaeology!

You only get a true sense of Stonehenge and Avebury once you have visited this museum.

Well worth skidding off the beaten track to go and see. I'm planning on going back with my daughter. Helpful, knowledgeable staff.

A designated museum of national significance, this museum is a must-see for anyone curious about the society which created Stonehenge, and much else besides - such as Romans, a really good viking gallery, and plans for new, shinier exhibitions in the future apparently.

A perfect accompaniment to Stonehenge basically.

This museum has a really interesting collection!
It has got the Archaeological finds from Stonehenge and Avebury.
These pieces include the "first king" burial finds, and other really interesting things. They are visible only in this museum, so It's a "must see" collection if you want to get the whole context of these prehistoric sites.

outstanding collection. The staff were very helpful. It would need much more media attention and publicity (maybe more funds too?).
