Make your own way to Devizes, around 30 minutes journey from Stonehenge, and the award-winning Wiltshire Museum, which opens 10am-5pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm-4pm on Sundays, to discover the world of Bronze Age Britain.
See gold and amber treasures dating back to the time of Stonehenge, 4,000 years ago: some may even have been worn by worshippers inside the iconic stone circle. Discover the jewels of the vast Bush Barrow royal grave, and learn about the stone circle at Avebury.
Along the way, unravel 500,000 years of Wiltshire history, including the Iron Age, Roman, and Saxon eras, in a 750,000 gallery equipped with leading edge reconstructions.
The museum makes a perfect rainy day activity with kids. They can build a model Stonehenge, examine archaeological evidence under a microscope, try on Bronze Age clothes, or follow a gallery trail. Best of all, kids under 16 go free.
