Manned by people who care and are knowledgable this is a great museum that is set to get better. If you have an association with Trowbridge this is a must (it’s free, so why wouldn’t you?). If you haven’t, it is still well worth a...More

Very user friendly, especially for children. The staff are very informative. It’s unusual to find a museum in the middle of a shopping centre.

An excellent exhibition of the wool trade and other local activities with actual machines on show including the Spinning Jenny. I can only take my hat off to the inventors - too complicated for me. Staff friendly and welcoming.

Have been many times, always with a group of school children. Each time they have a special demonstration. The staff are well informed, welcoming and knowledgeable. This time, I really liked the map of Trowbridge from the 1200s with just 5 houses. Entry is free...More
