Grand Opening of the new Galleries

Saturday, July 13, 2024 

Come along and celebrate with us as we open our three new galleries to the public for the first time.

Our doors open at 10am for visitors to see the new Devenish Bradshaw Salisbury Gallery, Natural History Gallery, and Ceramics Gallery, packed with objects, stories, and interactives, discover the Extraordinary Everyday of our local history.

Find out more about our journey to the new galleries and the Past Forward project here.


It is with thanks to the money raised by National Lottery players, that we can open our Devenish Bradshaw Salisbury History Gallery, Ceramics Gallery and Natural History Gallery to our local community and visitors from further afield to discover the extraordinary everyday of our city’s history, people, landscape and beyond.

The museum is hugely grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund Board and National Lottery players for their support.

Alongside the NLHF funding, the museum is grateful to the many individuals, trusts and foundations who have contributed towards the £1.2 million needed in match funding. This includes the Devenish Bradshaw family, The Foyle Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation, The Headley Trust, Roger Wadey, Wolfson Foundation, the Charles Hayward Foundation and the Linbury Trust.
