"Barn Gallery" Top 5 Page for this destination Alexander Keiller Museum Tip by Sjalen

Alexander Keiller Museum, Avebury: 3 reviews and 2 photos


The Barn Gallery is indeed a gallery about Avebury, with various exhibitions on the stone circle, who might have lived here and what has been found. It is housed in a wonderful and massive old barn which was once a part of the manor house nearby (see off the beaten path tip) and I must say I was more impressed by the barn than by the exhibition but there are sometimes theme days for children and so on and our daugher enjoyed some interactive displays on graves, geology and such. There is an entrance fee but that includes the nearby museum (below). I wish I could have been here at night as then the four species of bats living in the barn of course wake up :) Next to the exhibition is the vegetarian Circle cafe where you can also find ice cream. There is also a National Heritage shop opposite.

Address: High St, Avebury, Marlborough SN8 1RF
Directions: Follow the footpath almost opposite the tiny post office.
