There is so much more to the museum than our exhibitions and displays. Watch this video to learn about what we have. We also have a café, shop, Lecture Hall, Meetings Room and stunning King's Room. Many of our facilities are also available for hire.
The museum café offers a highly personalised service, with home cooking ranging from morning bites to a light lunch. There is a daily specials board and plenty of homemade cakes for those afternoon teas. To complement this, there is freshly ground coffee, tea and other refreshments. There is also a children’s option.
A range of quality gifts, greetings cards, jewellery, ceramics and books are available at our own shop. Our range of adult and children’s books includes archaeology, local Salisbury history, pre-history and medieval times. We also stock a range of books on Romans, Egyptians, etc. which are particularly suitable for primary school teachers.
Many of the items are unique to the shop, including our Medieval Catalogue, featuring many of our exhibits and finds.
