Great little museum. Plenty to interest you. Children love the fossils and 'finds' upstairs. The military part is a great look back and children can try on some uniforms. Cafe indoors and out is ok.

Lovely visit, saw all I wanted to see. Nice little museum and good cafe. Thought there would be more art to see. Perhaps they should exhibit pictures on loan from other art museums.

A good place to visit before touring around in Somerset to learn the history of this area. Well laid out ...spend about an hour here and then enjoy a lunch of artisan bread and homemade soup on the pleasant patio.

Probably too late - Morrisons is free for two hours and is large so normally has spaces.
