This tiny museum is lovingly curated by volunteers and has compiled a treasure trove of local history from a town that has a proud history of being different! From its famous admiral most have never heard of - Blake - to its public objection to...More

This is a wonderful little gem of a museum with so much packed inside a small space, run entirely by volunteers it is unreservedly worth a visit. The collection is, as always with such local museums, incredibly eclectic and I defy almost anyone to not...More

I popped in here as I desperately needed the toilet and the gentleman there kindly let me use his, I was also lost. I did have a quick peek around but sadly we were running very late and couldn't go in for a proper look,...More

I didn't know what to expect and from the outside it is like you are in the wrong place. It is down a side street with not much indication that a museum exists. There is public parking at the end of the street. Once inside...More

Really small museum, run by volunteers. Very educational about Somerset's history. It's absolutely free and great for a little day time activity. Highly recommend

Great little local museum, which is tucked away in a small side street and may be easily missed, which a shame.

A fascinating museum in the historic heart of Bridgwater. This ancient market town isn't generally very pretty but the historic mostly Georgian centre (although the castle walls are much earlier) is delightful and very interesting. There are plenty of artefacts and information on Admiral Lord...More

Visited with my two small children in the summer holidays, both girls enjoyed their visit. My 6 year old had to do a school project so she gathered information about Admiral Blake whilst my youngest (3), enjoyed looking at all the items on display. Great...More
