This museum tells the social and agricultural history of Somerset.

 The “Farmyard Galleries”, which includes two galleries: the “Working Village” which looks at rural trades, the work carried out at home and the difference between the lives of the rich and the poor, and the “Working the Land” gallery which explores the history of food production and farming in the county. There is also a 1948 farmhouse kitchen, an exhibit about village schools and education, a gallery showing the creativity of Somerset people including paintings, ceramics, sculpture and folk song and another gallery examining traditional religion, folklore and new age beliefs, amongst other exhibits.
