West Berkshire Museum is housed in two of Newbury's best loved historic buildings - the 17th century Cloth Hall and the old Granary / Corn Stores in the Wharf.
The museum explores stories of life in our area, from pre-history to today. We do this through our 10 regularly changing galleries as well as through activities and events. We are a modern, community museum working with, listening to and welcoming everyone who lives, works in or visits West Berkshire. Our friendly team is a mixture of our staff and volunteers working together to give visitors a fun visit.
We encourage everyone to enjoy their visit in their own way. We welcome photography and sharing on social media, we want to hear your comments and we provide family-friendly activities throughout the galleries.
Visitors can buy a range of books and souvenirs in the museum shop. These range from pocket money gifts to specialist books on local topics.
The museum cafe serves hot drinks and cold drinks and a range of handmade cakes with several gluten free options. Allergy advice is available from our staff. The cafe operates a loyalty scheme so don't forget to pick up your card.
Entry is free. For more information about the exhibitions and evens please visit www.westberkshireheritage.org
