  • One of the best laid out museums I have ever been to. Great for any age group. Very informative and interesting. A gem of Somerset.
  • Only here for a few hours but I was impressed. It looks small from the outside... so its Much bigger when you get in. Very well laid out. Some nice and unique exhibitions from Roman hoards and other intresting things. Plus a nice Caff√® in and out seating... clean rest rooms... and its free entry. ...
  • Great museum, lots to see and often has events on. We visited during castle day and they had sword fighting skills (with wooden swords), the chosen really enjoyed it. Cafe is good too we only had a coffee and snacks but reasonably priced. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit as a normal day is free entry, though there is a box for donations.
  • Better than expected! Has some very interesting exhibits from many parts of the local history. Well presented and explained.
  • great place they ask if you like to make a donation of ¬£2 but you don't have to it is by Taunton shopping centre that is a great shopping area as well
