February Half Term 

There is plenty to do at The Museum of Somerset this half term, whatever the weather.

Family trail

Throughout the week there is a family trail to enjoy.  This costs £1 per child, including a treat at the end.

Castle Day

On Sunday 12 February, between 10.00 am and 5.00 pm, visit Taunton’s 12th Century Castle for a day of family fun celebrating this very special historic building. There will be re-enactors, crafts and activities, and dressing up as well as a chance to learn a bit more about the castle building.

The cost is £3 pp or £10 for a family.  There is no need to book for Castle Day, just turn up.

Photo fun

The museum is currently hosting The Royal Photographic Society’s International Print Exhibition 159 which has inspired a family activity day on Wednesday 15 February.  Between 11.00 am and 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm and 3.30 pm children aged 3-12 can tell their story in a picture.

This drop-in session costs £1 per child, and all children must be accompanied.
