Messums Wiltshire is a leading multi-purpose gallery and arts centre. It has become a platform for creative expression across artistic genre and a meeting point of minds to explore how art as a language is made, interpreted, resolved and shared. Opened in Autumn 2016 after a two-year restoration project to bring a thirteenth century tithe barn, the largest thatched building in the United Kingdom, back to life as an exhibition and event space. The gallery’s one year anniversary was marked with the opening of the Long Gallery, a former dairy that lies perpendicular to the main barn to present two-dimensional works of art and objects of scale as well as The Mess Restaurant. The exterior landscape was remodelled in 2020 with sculpture grounds and outside seating.
