Museums celebrate and protect our rich heritage in Somerset



The Museum of Somerset is based in Taunton Castle and tells the county’s story from prehistoric times to the present day.

The Somerset Brick and Tile Museum in Bridgwater is dedicated to the local industry of brick and tile making, one of the many labour-intensive coal-based industries from Somerset’s past.

The Somerset Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury has just been refurbished and modernised.

All three museums have Facebook groups you can join to find out about events and activities.
