A very well layed out series of exhibitions. Very informative without an excess of information. Everywhere was clean and well maintained. I would love to live nearby so that I could revisit. A beautiful old building repurposed for the set up and free to enter.

Well worth a look. Good selection of history. Best of all it's free to enter. Not much to do in Newbury so give it a visit

Not far from the bus station, and the Canal Wharf, this excellent local history museum is something Newbury should be proud of. In one of England's most significantly archaeologically and historically rich areas. The West Berkshire Museum (WBM) reflects this, so much to see spread over a mixture of medieval and more modern buildings. Inevitably there are some sections that are whizzed through, but the WBM is carefully and thoughtfully laid out and has sections that highlight important parts of history that had an impact on the region; ie the Civil war, the building of canals and the impact of the railways.
It is a very worthwhile experience ( and is free !) I intend to return sometime soon. Excellent guides are there to help.
Also very good for kids activities !

With 2 hours in Newbury I decided to spend half that time here, but wish I’d had longer.
Not interpreting the entrance very well I went upstairs and at first was confused, together with someone who had done the same thing, that very little appeared to be there.
After walking into a type of reference library room and almost giving up, fortunately I found a door at the far end to push - and ended up going through the whole museum backwards!
This didn’t make any difference at all to my enjoyment of each of the galleries.
Some museums appear ‘stuffy’ and outdated - dimly-lit, with row after row of glass cases and boring labelling, but this place is bright, modern and welcoming, completely opposite to that, and is designed to appeal to all ages, with plenty of interest for everyone.
I particularly enjoyed the room devoted to the Greenham Common protest 40th anniversary but each and every gallery held my interest.
Definitely the best attraction in Newbury.

Fantastic little museum and the café had the most friendly people you could possibly meet. I was only going to pop in for a few minutes but ended up staying for an hour. I often stop in Newbury on my way to and from other places and I will be recommending this place to all my passenger's. Not a full on café with loads of choice but but for a sandwich and a cake at a very reasonably place this is the place to go. Right opposite the toilets and only a few hundred yards from the bus station and coach park.

Very welcoming staff, and very cultural experience. The various exhibits were displayed well with good explanations. If I could offer some constructive feedback it would be the upstairs exhibits felt more as though they were there to fill space whereas the ground floor seemed to contain much better content.

We were greeted warmly, and the building is bright airy and beautifully laid out, incredibly interesting, the history is so detailed, and great stories with the artefacts, especially found the exhibition about the different cultural relationships and attitudes to courtship and marriage particularly entertaining and touching, such personal stories and artefacts, truly lovely
We had such a lovely time, many thanks

Attractive modern local museum in two interesting ancient buildings. The space is used well, but inside you are not aware of the buildings at all, and the museum could be in any building. It's been well fitted out with lifts and cafe and very decent gift shop, and the chap in charge on the day of our visit was warm and friendly. Entry is free. There are typical local displays. Nothing particularly special, and the layout is fairly pedestrian, so this is not a top level museum, however it has a quiet charm. Not worth coming to Newbury for, but if you're in the town, it's worth popping in, unless it's a particularly lovely day, in which case everyone might be happier playing in the park by the Kennet.

A free museum but donations welcome. No need to book. Lots to see and do and easily spent a couple of hours looking around. When we visited there was a local art display. Some lovely paintings and photographs on show. This museum had lots of information about the area and is disabled friendly with a lift to the first floor. A small cafe for refreshments and parking nearby
