Trowbridge Museum tells the story of the town and the West of England woollen cloth trade. Through fascinating objects and unique Textile related machinery wonderful images learn how the town developed from Saxon times to the present day as well as discover how the woollen cloth trade came to dominate the town and the surrounding area.
Changing exhibitions throughout the year focus on different aspects of the town’s story, biennial Cloth Road and WEFT exhibitions as well as smaller shows by partners such as the U3A and Trowbridge Camera Club.
We have a thriving Learning and Outreach service for children and adults and a regular programme of art, craft and history workshops. If you are undertaking some local history or family research then give us call or if you just want to see our incredibly rare Spinning Jenny just pop along – we are open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am.
We would like to thank Trowbridge Camera Club for many of the images used on this website.
