  • A very interesting small museum about the local area. Well worth diverting off the A34 on your journey. There is a car park and small cafe by the nearby canal and it is only a short walk into the centre.
  • Can't comment on the actual museum as we didn't go inside it, but went for an organised event about the Victorians and we all really enjoyed it. The museum looked clean, well laid out, good shop for all your extras. Café was available, and parking was also just across the street.
  • A really lovely family place. Lots of interesting activities for your child.
  • Interesting and decent small locally museum that is child friendly, clean, and free. The exhibits show the history of West Berkshire using locally found items from stone age to the near present. There's interesting exhibits on Jack of Newbury, greenham airbase, historically significant events regarding Donnington Castle, Newbury bypass, Vodafone and more. The top floor has changing exhibits usually every month. They hold child friendly activities during school holidays occasionally. There is Café, wheelchair access, lifts, plenty of toilets and it's free.
  • Well constructed and professional displays, with new and interesting themes continually introduced, freindly and knowledgeable staff.
