    Worth a perusal of Somerset History

    Really worth a wonder around as it gives such a well presented insight to the people who have lived in Somerset over the centuries and the lives they led. Good cafe as well.

    It's ok, but I preferred it before it was modernised.

    Great museum charting the history of the local area.
