The Chippenham Museum and Heritage centre tells the story of the people and history of Chippenham and the surrounding villages from prehistoric times up until the present day. As well as being able to explore the collections on display you are welcome to use the research room, using the collection for work, school or to explore the past (please call in advance to book the dedicated research room). With a large photographic and paper archive and objects relating to Chippenham, many people have discovered their own history.
