Visit Witney Museum
The Museum has recently merged with the Witney & District Historical and Archaeological Society to form what will now be known as the Witney Museum and Historical Society. In forming this new partnership both societies are committed to extending their involvement in the Witney community. Witney is a dynamic, successful and expanding market town and our goal is to reflect this in our exhibitions and talks throughout the year.

The Witney Museum & Historical Society has a permanent exhibition showing the life and times of the area, from prehistory to early settlements, and the transition to a market town in medieval times, through the development of the blanket industry, the two World Wars and the growth of the modern town.
There is also a changing programme of exhibitions by local artists and craft-workers upstairs in the Bartlett-Taylor Gallery, interspersed with historical displays of local interest. See Witney Museum information
We welcome new members, and encourage everyone to help realise our vision of making the Witney Museum & Historical Society a useful and valuable community resource.
