After a period of refurbishment and renovation generously financed by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Trowbridge Museum reopened in the spring of 2021, marking its return and reaffirming its status as one of Wiltshire’s leading historical visitor attractions. Visitors can explore 1000 years of the town’s history, from its origins as ‘Treebridge’ through to its industrial heyday in the Victorian period and beyond. 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 also has lots of fun interactives and breakout zones that are perfect for the whole family to enjoy, and their famous Mouse Hunt for little explorers to really get stuck into. With a state-of-the-art Learning Hub and regular original exhibitions, Trowbridge Museum is a must for any visit to the town.
