West Berkshire Museum is housed in two of Newbury’s best loved historic buildings - the 17th century Cloth Hall and the old Granary/Corn Stores in the Wharf. The permanent exhibition ‘Lives and Landscapes’ tells the story of West Berkshire, from the rocks under our feet to the stories of the people who have lived here, including well known characters such as Jack of Newbury.
The second floor galleries host a series of special exhibitions so there is always something new to see along with a year round program of events and family activities. Gallery 5, on the second floor, can be hired to display original artwork, sculpture and crafts.
We are a modern, community museum welcoming everyone who lives, works in or visits West Berkshire. Our friendly team is a mixture of staff and volunteers working together to give visitors a fun visit.
Visitors can buy a range of books, souvenirs and locally produced crafts in the museum shop. These range from pocket money gifts to specialist books on local topics.
West Berkshire Museum is open Wednesday to Sunday 10am – 4pm. Entry is free but donations are most welcomed.
