Current Museum

Apsley House

The current Museum and Art Gallery has been housed in Apsley House, on Bath Road, for many years, and the collections comprise around 100,000 objects.

The Swindon Collection of Modern British Art is one of the most significant collections of modern British art outside London, featuring works from major figures and movements including Lucian Freud, Alfred Wallis, Henry Moore, LS Lowry, Graham Sutherland, Maggi Hambling and Paul Nash.

The museum collection, which includes collections of geology, archaeology, the natural world and social history, traces its origins to geologist Charles Gore, who gifted his collections to the town in the 1920s.
