Tripadvisor 2023 Travellers’ Choice Award

STEAM Museum is proud to announce that it has been recognised by Tripadvisor, and has been awarded a Tripadvisor 2023 Travellers’ Choice Award.

The coveted award celebrates businesses that have consistently received great traveller reviews on Tripadvisor over the last 12 months, placing the winners among the top 10 per cent of all listings on Tripadvisor globally.

The Swindon Borough Council-owned Museum joins top attractions from across the UK as being named among the top attractions on Tripadvisor’s listings.

Frances Yeo, Swindon Museums Manager, said:

“I’m delighted that STEAM Museum has been recognised with a Travelers’ Choice award from Tripadvisor. This is thanks to all of our amazing staff and volunteers who work hard to ensure a high quality and enjoyable visit for all our guests. Additionally, I want to express gratitude to our visitors, whose support and feedback continues to help us refine and enhance our museum experience.”


Councillor Marina Strinkovsky, Swindon Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Art and Heritage, said:

“It is amazing news we have once again been given a Traveller’s Choice award as it is a great recognition for our fantastic museum. We know STEAM is a great place to visit, but to have such strong feedback from our visitors shows we are providing a great day out for people of all ages and is a real feather in the cap for Swindon.”


John Boris, Chief Growth Officer at Tripadvisor, congratulated all the Traveller’s Choice winners. He said:

“The travel resurgence we’ve seen throughout the past year has even further heightened the competition. Earning a Travellers’ Choice Award demonstrates that you have provided great experiences to those who matter most: your guests. With changing expectations, continued labour shortages, and rising costs, this is no easy feat, and I am continually impressed with the hospitality industry’s resilience and ability to adapt. Cheers to another successful year!”


Thank you to our amazing staff, visitors and volunteers!
