  • It was much more than expected, it is now completely renovated. The Museum is free except that they want to visit the samples that are visiting. It is quite complete and worth the visit. A wide history of Somerset, along with corresponding to every epoch costumes and objects. The staff is very friendly and explains everything you need. There are many activities and games for children if you are interested! It is located in the plaza of the old Castle.

  • Lovely little cafe attached to the museum, simple food but done so well. The Somerset club sandwich is delicious. 
  • Really good coffee and a really big slab of victoria sponge, which was amazing. Service really good too. 
  • It's a hidden gem! The cafe is gorgeous, and the museum is brilliant for both children and adults. They run on donations as they're a charity, which makes it an affordable place to visit.
  • Most informative, had no idea that so much information could be placed into what looks like (from the outside) a small building. This place is just 'dripping' with historical information.
  • Well laid out, fascinating & far more exhibits than I was expecting...and a nice cafe too.
  • Wonderful free attraction. Lovely cafe and atmosphere.
  • Since the refurbishment it has been given a family friendly makeover which has included a serious dumbing down of most of the exhibits in general. Been once andvwont go back. Try RAMM in Exeter instead if you like a bit of substance behind what you are looking at.
