Like all of the other reviews, do not be fooled by the small exterior to this building, there is a world of history within. It covers a comprehensive history of stonehenge, Avebury etc through to more recent times in Devizes - well and truly worth a visit!

Great little museum in Devizes - just on the street and no parking but found some on the street. Good admission price and they had some amazing pieces from Stonehenge and other dig sites...worth it!

Well worth a visit. Looks small from the outside, but large inside. Amazing gold collection from Stonehenge.

Amazing museum, showing the history and landscape of Wiltshire. The new Gold from Stonehenge display is awe inspiring. Also the history of Devizes exhibition is really interesting. Well worth a visit.

Fantastic little gem. Much more here than you would expect from the outside and well worth putting a couple of hours aside to appreciate the very well laid out museum. Full of very interesting, well presented displays.
