Even as a local, I found every aspect of the museum interesting, well laid-out, absorbing and extremely accessible for all types of people/levels of interest.
It's free (even the excellently-made guide book is only £2.50!) , right in the centre of Taunton, you don't have to worry about the weather and the facilities are very, very good.
The museum is something to be really proud of in this area now and I would highly recommend visitors (and locals) take up the great opportunity of this fabulous museum.
