|The history of South Somerset can now be experienced in the splendid displays of the newly refurbished Museum of South Somerset. From Prehistoric and Roman occupations, through to agricultural and industrial revolutions, the Museum of South Somerset shows, in an imaginative and exciting way, what rural life and times through the ages was really like.
Visitors will discover artefacts of a past and passing age set in scenes that recapture the atmosphere of their time.
Housed in the former coach house to Hendford Manor, the Museum of South Somerset's modern displays draw upon many different collections brought together by Alderman WRE Mitchelmore, Mayor of Yeovil from 1918 - 1921. Over the years benefactors have donated other important collections, including those of fossils, firearms, glassware and costume.
