Warminster Museum

Study area icon Wheelchair access icon

In 1973 the History Society assumed the care of artefacts from the Town Council, including the Victor Manley collection of Geology, the Harold Dewey Collection, and other items given for the benefit of the people of Warminster. The Society set up a Museum in the Sexton’s cottage at the rear of the Chapel of St Lawrence.

In 1982 the Museum moved to the present Library building

where it has a display area, storeroom and offices.

Only a proportion of its items can be on display at any one time, but items from the Museum storeroom can be studied by arrangement with the museum staff. Displays are changed on a regular basis, and special events in local and national history are marked.

Displays and conservation work are paid for by the Society, and all work is undertaken by Society members.

Items on display in the Museum area of the Public Library can be viewed during Library opening times.
