The Cricklade Museum was established by the Cricklade Historical Society who are responsible for its maintenance. The Museum is one of 54 supported by Wiltshire County Council’s Museum Service and is a key tourist attraction for Cricklade.
The Museum, despite its small size, houses more than 8,000 items in its collection.
The aim of the Museum is to collect, conserve, research, interpret and provide public access to objects associated with the Cricklade district thereby encouraging people to acquire knowledge of local history. The main strength of the collection lies in objects from the 19th and 20th centuries.
There are research resources for family and local history, family trees, maps, and a properties index together with a veritable mine of information held on the Museum’s databases.
