Was very much looking forward to visiting this museum but unfortunately we choose to visit on our last morning in Wallingford. It does not open till 2.00pm, very poor show indeed!

We recently visited the Wallingford Museum. They have a room devoted to Agatha Christie fans. That's why I went, but there are lots of other good exhibits there, too. Wallingford has lots of history associated with it. it's certainly worth a stop.

A nice local museum, with interest for all the family. The kids will be kept entertained with the "discovery draws", and "dig box".

Small museum, in Wallingford, detailing the history of the area and celebrating it's association with Agatha Christie and the filming of Midsommer Murders. The building is called Flint house which gives you a clue to it's construction. The museum takes you through a time line from the early settlers, the time of Cromwell, Victorian times and recent history. We found... More

I know I am not British, I know when you live in the town it is different, I know that I am not a fun of history, I understand the historical value of Wallingford, but can't understand how a town with such history and events importance heritage can have such poor museum. Really tight and not much interesting. Nice building... More

It is a real treasure. Not until you get inside do you see the total dedication that has gone into this wonderful experience. Great afternoon - do not rush round and there is so much to see.
