Located in the Old Town area, it is a small museum over 3 floors & a larger art gallery annexe, the museum rotates it's collection of artifacts to exhibit as many as possible. The Art gallery shows many of Swindon's collection of modern British art, the most important collection outside of London. Friendly knowledgeable staff are on hand for any questions. Entrance is free & it's a good way to spend a couple of hours.
Great day out. Mummy very interesting. Will be back
Very nice place, some of the art collection was not the best, it is swindon after all. The museum section was excellent who knew there was an Egyptian mummy in Swindon....
There is a exhibition at the moment from Severnake community centre, there is a show case of knitted famous dolls as well as other things.
A free attraction in Swindon's Old Town. It's a real step back in time with products from yesteryear that were made in Swindon, dinasors and a mummie. Lots of photos and pleanty to see for all ages. Plan about 45 minutes to an hour. Art gallery is worth a ponder.
