We went to the museum to meet the facinating museum volunteer who was helping us try to research our 110 year old miners cottage, we didn't find much about our house but learnt so much about the area.

Went to the Radstock museum and thought it was really great for a local museum. The exhibits were well laid out and was so interesting to see local history.

8 members of our WI (Stanton Drew) visited today, to view the WI exhibition.- A wonderful snapshot of social life over the last 100 years. Well done to all those who contributed, and put the exhibits together. Radstock museum never disappoints; friendly as ever, lots to look at, good value, and tasty cake!

A visit here is very worthwhile and all the way between a Victorian Class Room to the Somerset Coal fields is to be enjoyed it evens has the atmosphere synchronizing with the experience . Good parking and very welcoming and really is a worthwhile stop in anyone's day or travels.

I really enjoyed this museum. An excellent archive and history. My 12 yr old didn't want to go ("it will be like school") but also really enjoyed it.
