Vale and Downland Museum

The museum is housed within a converted 16thC cloth merchant's house. An interactive auditorium presents the history of the Vale and Downland area. Special collections from across the Vale display the story of Wantage and the rural life of its surrounding countryside. The latest technology is not forgotten, with a Williams Formula 1 racing car display. The Tourist Information Centre for Wantage is on the ground floor.
