We are delighted to announce that we have improved our on-line ticketing so that all tickets cost the same, whether they are purchased on-line at http://www.themuseumofsomerset.ticketsource.co.uk or by calling the museum. It is not possible to book all tickets on-line, for our smaller events they are only available from the museum, but we hope for the larger events visitors will really appreciate being able to buy them 24/7.
