Salisbury Museum

A long-standing client of MEA, we have worked with Salisbury Museum for a number of years on multiple projects at their Grade I listed site in Cathedral Close.

Salisbury Museum houses one of the finest collections of local archaeology and artefacts relating to Stonehenge. Based in The King’s House, the building dates back to the thirteenth century and acquired its name following visits by King James I of England in 1610 and 1613, eventually becoming home to the museum in 1981.

In 2014, following funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we assisted in the delivery of the Wessex Gallery of Archaeology, for the second-round bid and delivery phases. This gallery is home to many important archaeological finds including artefacts from Stonehenge World Heritage site, The Pitt Rivers Wessex collection, and the Amesbury Archer.

Our most recent project at Salisbury Museum, is again supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and is a multi-phase project. Phase 1 works comprised extensive repairs to the external fabric of the main Grade I listed building as well as internal refurbishment. The second phase of work comprised gallery preparation and fit out.

The finished galleries will provide Salisbury Museum with an opportunity to showcase its impressive collection of artifacts, attract new visitors and increase engagement with the local community.

MEA worked as Project Manager and Quantity Surveyor throughout these projects.
