Trowbridge Museum is FREE to enter. Most of our events and activities are also free unless indicated.

The Museum tells the story of a thousand years of the history of Wiltshire’s County Town, from its Saxon estate, Medieval Castle and as the centre of West of England woollen cloth production in the industrial period.

Visit the Medieval Castle area, glimpse what life was like in Trowbridge during the Middle Ages and meet formidable Magna Carta Baron – Sir Henry De Bohun.

Why not dress up as medieval character and get your picture snapped in the selfie booth? Or practise being a knight and see some fearsome weaponry!

Housed in a former woollen cloth mill, there are plenty of interactive exhibits for all ages to enjoy, a mouse hunt and regular temporary exhibitions.

Opening Hours:
Tuesday – Friday: 10am – 4pm
Saturday: 10am – 4.30pm
Closed Sunday and Monday and Bank Holidays

The museum is on the first floor of Home Mills (within the Shires), up several short flights of stairs – we have a lift available for visitors who require assistance.

We have toilet facilities, including one suitable for wheelchair access. Baby-changing facilities are available in the disabled toilet.

Parking is available in The Shires car park. We are also a 5 minute walk from Trowbridge Train Station and Bus stops within the town centre.
