Wallingford Museum is a colourful and delightfully intimate local history museum, housed in a medieval oak-beamed hall-house opposite the Saxon banks in the Kinecroft and next to the Public Library. There is ample car-parking behind the nearby Waitrose.
Recently the Museum doubled in size - it now occupies both floors of Flint House. If you can, allow at least 1½ hours for your visit - but if you keep your ticket you can always come back again!
