The Friends of Radstock Museum.
The Friends of the Museum are a community-based fund-raising group who meet regularly to discuss ways of promoting the Museum Society and the Museum.
The aim of the Friends is to raise funds for the Museum by organising or helping to organise fund-raising events, by acting as volunteers to support these events and by promoting the Museum and what it offers at every opportunity.
It is FREE to join the Friends group and you are invited to look at their webpage for more information. Friends webpage.
The Radstock, Midsomer Norton and District Museum Society.
The Museum Society, formed in 1985, is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers.
Its aims include ‘Preserving the Social and Industrial Heritage of the Communities of the Former Somerset Coalfield’.
The Society’s collection first went on permanent display in 1989 at Barton Meade, Haydon. Ten years later, on the 10th July 1999, the new museum opened in the former Victorian Market Hall in the centre of Radstock. The Society’s collection of artefacts and specimens is now on show at Radstock Museum in a variety of imaginative displays.
You can join the Museum Society as a philanthropic gesture and to receive several Member’s Only benefits.
