Wallingford Museum

Wallingford Museum

Wallingford Museum is a small museum with collections of local interest, housed in a 17th century town house in Wallingford in the English county of Oxfordshire (formerly Berkshire).

This small museum has an extensive collection relating to the history of Wallingford, Oxfordshire, England. Amongst other things, displays cover archaeology, Wallingford Castle, and the town in mediaeval and Victorian times. An audio tour is available.

The museum is in an attractive flint-faced house (the exterior is 17th century, and the timber-framed interior is possibly late 15th century) and faces onto the Kinecroft, an open space in Wallingford which is bordered on two sides by Anglo-Saxon burh defences built in the 9th century.

The address is Wallingford Museum, Flint House, 52 High Street, Wallingford, OX10 ODB. The Museum is run by The Wallingford History and Archaeology Society.
