Friends of the Museum

The Friends of The Museum of Somerset is a registered charity that brings together people who are passionate about Somerset’s past and future. If you love museums and care about Somerset’s rich heritage we want you to join us.

The Friends help the Museum in a number of ways, including helping with their collections, supporting and co-ordinating research, raising funds for special projects and improving access to the collections.

The Friends meet regularly throughout the year to enjoy illustrated talks, outings, social events as well as working on specific projects. Membership benefits also include a regular newsletter.

The Friends supported the redevelopment of the museum which opened in 2011 following a £6.93m redevelopment.
