In the Alex Hann Exhibition Gallery this year.

For Autumn 2023 we are excited to present a new Exhibition which will run until November 30th.

‘Pressing Matters’: The World of Irons, over two centuries”

A fascinating exhibition of historic flat irons, curated by Penny Savill.

This exhibition runs alongside our regular and other temporary exhibitions.

This special exhibition runs until 30th November 2023.

For 2023 we have added some smaller displays pertinent to the history of the Somerset Coalfield, the local area and local people.

2023 is the 50th Anniversary of the closure of the last two pits in the Somerset Coalfield.

On the ground floor of the Museum a small new display will be installed to mark this year’s anniversary.

Herbert Golledge and the Edward Medal

Also new on display is the Edward Medal (Mines) awarded to local man Herbert Golledge in 1917 alongside associated photographs and information telling the story of the act of bravery that led to that award. These items have recently been kindly donated by the Golledge family and are on display for the first time.
