The museum is housed in two of Newbury's most historic buildings. The Cloth Hall was built in 1626-1627. The Granary was built in 1723.

The museum opened in the Cloth Hall in 1904 after the building had been restored in memory of Queen Victoria. The museum was extended in 1934 when new galleries were built between the two historic buildings and in 1985 further galleries were opened in the Granary building. Since April 1998 the museum has been operated by West Berkshire Council. There are 10 galleries on two floors.

This is the fifth cathedral to be built on the site. It was designed by Sir Christopher Wren after its predecessor was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666. St Paul's has been the setting for many historic occasions, including the marriage of the late Diana, Princess of Wales to HRH the Prince of Wales.

It has become a symbol of national endurance, particularly since it survived World War II bombing while many surrounding buildings were destroyed. The nave, transepts and choir are in the shape of a cross, as in a medieval cathedral, but the majestic interior reflects the Baroque movement in architecture.
