Nice little museum, definitely worth a visit. And the picture gallery on the first floor was an interesting bonus. But it just needs something extra, like a little tea room, a gift shop. Something. Staff were friendly and welcoming which was great, but something extra...More

Various displays about the local area and those that lived there. Also a number of fossils and different kinds of stone.Particularly liked the Reverends diary analogues and for a measly £1 entrance fee it's as cheap as chips to while away an hour or so...More

In many ways a typical local museum, a range of displays covering the natural and social history of the area. The fossil and geology section was particularly detailed but the biographies of important people in the town's development was, for me, the most interesting. We...More

We always try to visit local history museums, and have seen a fair few. This museum was like many we have seen, with a good range of artefacts and interesting information, and we spent a good hour enjoying the displays. The museum covers a huge...More

This is a lovely little museum with lots of insight provided about the local areas. The World War 1 exhibition has lots of interesting information based on local people. I particularly enjoyed the Kilvert section. Kilvert is a neglected writer in my opinion so it...More

Interesting but rather traditional museum with all sorts of exhibits accompanied by not particularly user friendly descriptions. Did like the sketches of what the small fossil animals would have looked like as fossils themselves do not give the full picture. Certainly worth a half hour...More
