The Museum of Somerset

Taunton, Somerset

The Museum of Somerset tells the county's story from prehistoric times to the present day using real objects combined with evocative films, sounds and images, and the voices and words of Somerset people past and present.

This must-see visitor attraction contains objects from across many of the museum's collections, including geology, archaeology, medieval and ethnography. The museum also houses the Somerset Military Museum. There are lots of interactives and family areas for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
Amongst the treasures on display is the Frome Hoard, which is the largest collection of Roman coins ever discovered in Britain in a single container.

The museum has set a new standard in the county for a modern visitor attraction. As well as the permanent galleries, the museum offers regularly changing temporary exhibitions and activities such as family drop-in sessions and lunchtime talks. There is also a programme of special events, including evening talks, music and outdoor theatre.
