This is a lovely little museum tucked down a side street (King Street) with many displays of interest on offer. There is also a kids' section with dressing up clothes from various periods of history, and which, I have to confess, we tried on, too! Well worth a visit, this museum is atmospheric and almost cosy. Really lovely building.

As I live in Bridgwater the Bridgwater Blake Museum is very historic as it was,originally the birth place of Robert Blake a very famous naval seaman. There is a statue in Bridgwater of Admiral Blake in the town and worth recommended also a good look as the situation where he is,he is pointing towards his birthplace. There is one thing that I dislike and that the rear of the museum looks out onto a public gardens.

This small museum is located in a C16th house. The friendly volunteers were happy to chat and answer some questions I had. As well as the usual archaelogical bits and pieces there are a number of themed rooms. One room devoted to Robert Blake, local MP who was apparently born in the house, he fought on the Parliamentary side in the civil war. I also enjoyed the room about transport with information about the local docks and railways. The battle room with displays on the Battle of Sedgemoor and the civil war was also fascinating. There is also a small garden with seats to the rear of the museum, and a small shop with some local history books for sale.
