There is so much going on at Radstock Museum!
Our permanent displays tell you of the life of a Somerset miner and his family and show how the communities of the coalfield were integrated.
School visits are arranged with the Education Team lead volunteer. The Museum is also a great destination for a group or social visit.
The SHOP specialises in publications relating to the heritage of the area. We also stock greetings cards, gifts and memorabilia.
Radstock Museum is a great place to be a VOLUNTEER. Come and join us.

Our unique archive of documents, and over 17,000 photographs, relating to the former Somerset Coalfield is available for Research.
