November Lockdown

In line with the Government guidance our museums are now closed. This includes The Museum of Somerset, Somerset Rural Life Museum and Somerset Brick and Tile Museum. We will not be able to visit schools during this time either. Our Loans Service will continue to operate. We will resume our museum workshops and in-school visits when Government guidance makes that possible so please keep an eye on the website.

Bring the national curriculum to life with our interactive, fun and informative workshops.

Bring your group to our Museums in Taunton, Glastonbury or Bridgwater or we can visit your school.
