The Alexander Keiller Museum houses some of the most interesting artefacts from the World Heritage Site.

Named after the famous archaeologist who worked on Avebury in the 1930s, this small museum, and the collection it displays, will give you a greater understanding about Avebury and the surrounding World Heritage Site.  It will help you to understand the huge massive henge and its banks and ditches, the stone circles and the avenues, as well as information on the other monuments and artefacts form the wider Avebury landscape giving you a taste of what life was like in the Neolithic and Bronze Age.

National Trust members and English Heritage members have free entry.
