“Full of local colour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

Tiny but packed with very local history. The naive but technical paintings of local artist Thomas Chidgy are a particular pleasure. No charge for entry but it would be churlish not to leave a donation.

“Tiny but OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

A very small museum but it's free so worth a quick visit. The boat models were the most interesting and the pictures of the days when Watchet received very large ships in its harbour.

“Lots of History under one roof”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

There's loads of things to have a look at for free in this little museum. Well worth a look at! From fossils to saxons to industrialisation there's lots of exhibits to see. Make sure you check out the jail cell too!
