  • Excellent museum next to the Cathedral with amazing displays highlighting Constable's painting and the local findings...great staff took us like in a private tour showing us all the place... beautifully maintained and with great exhibits...
  • Home of one of the best archaeological collections in the country, now displayed in a fantastic new gallery. The Salisbury focussed collections are also great not to mention the Constable paintings. My kids love it.
  • A fine museum. The "Stonehenge" area has the relics from the, world famous, "Amesbury Archer" and there are regular, changing, exhibitions. For example, at the moment, there's "Constable in Context" with Constable's painting of Salisbury Cathedral, on loan from the Tate, as the stunning centre piece.
  • Excellent exhibitions and lovely staff.
  • The Wessex gallery (the archaeology wing) alone is definetely a must see. It is deceptively small but full of information and very relevant, modern displays, among those the world famous Amesbury Archer. Talk to the curators, they are a trove full of information.
