An excellent museum set in an old barn which has the original roof, an interesting feature in itself. This is a perfect addition to a visit to the Avebury Stones and Avebury Manor. Behind the museum is a nice cafe + toilets. Ideal for family...More

Interesting museum linking local findings of archaeological history. Free entry for English Heritage members.

The Museum is in the stable block near to the Manor House. It contains the collection of Mr Keiller who restored the Avebury Stone Circle. While it is interesting and informative it is small. Takes about 20-30 minutes to visit.

We visited as a family but found the entry fee so exorbitant that only one of us could afford to look inside. Frankly, the museum is small and not very informative. Definatly not worth the fee. I'm getting tired of national trust / English heritage...More
