The Marlborough Museum is located in the heart of Marlborough next door to The Merchant’s House in the famous High Street. The principal collection involves local artefacts and ephemera much of which was donated by the local Free, Hillier and Neate families, among others.
The museum is also the recipient of additional and varied collections, involving postal history, scouting, transportation and agriculture, taking the visitor on a journey through time and charting the development of Marlborough and the wider district.
The Merchant’s House Trust agreed to set up a Marlborough Museum as part of their commitment to the Town. Over many years, items of local interest from the surrounding areas have been collected and stored in readiness for this day. The collection seeks to cover the history of the town and its villages beginning in the 18th century and going up to the period following the second world war.

Please note: The Merchant’s House, a 17th Century restoration of a silk merchant’s house, is next door to the Marlborough Museum but is separate from it, with its own charge for a guided tour. We regret to point out that admission to either the Museum or to a Merchant’s House tour does not include admission for the other.

Opening Times:
Open on Fridays & Saturdays from April to October from 10am to 4pm
Entry fee:
Adults – £3 Under 16’s Free
