The Heritage Lottery Fund has approved a development grant of £87,400 for the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum for the creation of a new gallery detailing the history and archaeology of Salisbury and the surrounding area.
 
“The gallery plans make up the first phase of a ten year master plan to redevelop the King’s House. The central theme of the master plan is to recast the museum as a discovery museum, aimed at all levels of learning. The new gallery will tell the story of Salisbury and the surrounding area from prehistoric times to the Norman Conquest, showing why Salisbury has a unique place in the region’s and nation’s history.

“The gallery will contain new archaeological discoveries from the Stonehenge landscape. It will also incorporate activities and learning programmes for all levels of learning, from pre-school children up to post-graduate students, and families who want to learn in an informal and enjoyable way.”
