In 1973 the History Society assumed the care of artefacts from the town council, including the Victor Manley collection of geology, the Harold Dewey Collection, and other items given for the benefit of the people of Warminster. The society set up a museum in the Sexton's cottage at the rear of the Chapel of St Lawrence. In 1982 the museum moved to the present library building where it has a display area, storeroom and offices. Only a proportion of its items can be on display at any one time, but items from the museum storeroom can be studied by arrangement with the museum staff.

The History Centre brings together the archaeology, archive, buildings record, conservation, and museum advisory services together with the county local studies library to create a centre whose sum is much more than that of its parts.
