AboutSet in the historic market town of Devizes the Wiltshire Museum is housed in Georgian and Victorian buildings. The Museum has been located here since 1874 and contains the largest collection of Early Bronze Age gold ever put on display in England.
The Museum and Library have been at their current location in Long Street since 1873, occupying first the old Victorian Devizes Grammar School, then the two Georgian houses on either side of the Entrance Hall. Further extensions have increased its size to the present day. It has overseen many of the famous excavations on Salisbury Plain and the Marlborough Downs made by the Cunnington family and is a repository of the artefacts and writings of earlier antiquaries such as Sir Richard Colt Hoare of Stourhead House.
