From start to finish this museum is excellent. A friendly welcome, well laid out exhibits, and lots of information. The route is COVID-friendly with plenty of room to wander. I was fascinated by the huge horde of silver coins.

Really worth a wonder around as it gives such a well presented insight to the people who have lived in Somerset over the centuries and the lives they led. Good cafe as well.

This used to be a great place, full of character and history. It's still ok and worth visiting, but since the work was done, something has been lost that will probably never return.

I love this place, so much to see and take in. The layout going through the ages makes it much easier to understand.

The Museum is housed in Taunton’s 12th century castle. The museum hosts a collection of toys and dolls, sculpture, natural history, fossils, fine silver, remains of pottery, and it also contains a collection of archaeological items, including the magnificent mosaic found at the Low Ham Roman Villa. Also included is the Somerset Military Museum where visitors are enabled to follow the fortunes of the Somerset Light Infantry as they carried out their campaigns across the world. This exhibit is a very well laid out section that is easily followed in chronological order. Also included is the impressive " Frome Hoard", a hoard of 52,503 Roman coins found in April 2010 by metal detectorist. There is a small shop and a cafe on site but the best thing of all is that it is absolutely free to enter!.
