Winchcombe is an ancient and unspoilt historic town set amongst the beautiful rolling Cotswold Hills of Gloucestershire. It lies about 7 miles north east of Cheltenham.
Winchcombe Museum is a small 'accredited museum' administered by Winchcombe Town Trust and run entirely by volunteers. It contains a varied folk and local history collection highlighting the fascinating history of Winchcombe and its people through the ages.
There are a large number of local family and history folders and information which are available to view. These all help to explain more about Winchcombe and the surrounding area as well as assisting possibly with your own family history research.
The museum also houses a fantastic collection of British and International Police Uniforms - both historic and modern.
There are also free 'activity sheets' for accompanied children and also a small shop.
We have a stairlift, but the museum is not suitable for wheelchair users.
The museum is normally open between the hours of: 10.00 to 16.00 hrs on Monday – Saturday from April to October.
