Friends of West Berkshire Museum
There has been a museum in the Cloth Hall in Newbury since 1904, but some of the collections were first put together in the 1840s by the Newbury Literary and Scientific Institute. It is now a community museum representing the whole of West Berkshire and offering a friendly welcome to visitors, groups and societies. The Museum has a cafe serving light refreshments and is fully accessible for wheelchairs and buggies. Admission is free.
The Museum is run by West Berkshire Council. It collects objects, images and audio-visual material which have a link to West Berkshire. That might mean it's something that was made in West Berkshire, is linked to something that happened there or was used by someone who lived or worked in the area.
The museum's collections are very varied and not all of the collections are on display at once. Displays are changed frequently so that there's always something new to see, which makes it worth visiting the Museum on a regular basis.
