David Dawson, Director of Wiltshire Museum will be talking about exciting plans to relocate Wiltshire Museum to the Devizes Assize Courts
We announced in September 2016 that the Society is looking at the potential of moving the Wiltshire Museum to the Devizes Assize Courts, turning the historic building into a landmark tourism asset for the county.
The building is listed Grade II* and on the Historic England Buildings at Risk Register. It has been empty since the 1980’s. The owner has had planning permission and listed building consent to convert the building into flats for a number of years but has not yet implemented the permission. It is hoped the building can be acquired for community use.
Relocating the Museum to the Assize Courts would be a transformational project, linked to a newly revitalised area of the town. It could be a world-class building matching the importance of our internationally significant Designated collections. The building would offer more space, including a café, new library and purpose-built galleries
