Trowbridge Museum

Trowbridge Museum is currently closed for renovation and expansion and its planned reopening in the spring of 2021 will se its welcome return as one of Wiltshire’s leading historical visitor attractions. You will be able to explore 1000 years of the town’s history, from its origins as ‘Treebridge’ through to its industrial heyday in the Victorian period and beyond. You will discover how Trowbridge was shaped by the scale of production and the quality of its world famous West of England woollen cloth, and how this impacted upon the community that grew up around it. Enjoy the unique collection of 19th and 20th century industrial machinery including an incredibly rare Spinning Jenny (one of only five surviving in the world) and a maquette (cast) of Henry de Bohun, a local baron and one of 25 who forced King John to seal the Magna Carta in 1215. The Museum will also have lots of fun interactives and breakout zones that will be perfect for the whole family to enjoy, and their famous Mouse Hunt for your little explorers to really get stuck into. With a state-of-the-art Learning Hub and regular original exhibitions, Trowbridge Museum will be a must for any visit to the town.
