You might think £8 a bit much for a local museum but Salisbury is anything but a small town bolthole. The museum has only a few exhibitions but that is because each exhibition has a multitude of pieces and things to see...draws to pull out......More

If you are visiting Salisbury, or if you live locally, a visit to the Wessex Gallery will reveal the story of South Wiltshire. It's a great exhibition, dont miss it!

Brilliant exhibits- especially the bronze/ iron age exhibits. Staff were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and extremely interesting to talk to. An amazingly positive experience.

We arrived to find the museum had an exhibition on that we enjoyed. The toilet were clean and the shop limited. Good Visit but expected more on the history.

I went to see Constable's Haywain which was almost overwhelming. The Museum has many treasures and you can keep your ticket and go back within the year if you haven't time to 'do itall'

I agree with some comments below - it depends on your interest. I enjoy history and archaeology and 2 hours were totally inadequate. There are some really good exhibits, and if you are interested in reading the exhibits... More
