Radstock Category Museums & Galleries

The Radstock, Midsomer Norton and District Museum Society was founded in 1985 to preserve the social and industrial heritage of the communities of the Somerset Coalfields.  The Societies collection was first put on permanent display in Haydon in 1989.  In 1996 the old Radstock Market Hall was acquired and three years later Radstock Museum opened its doors. 

Radstock Museum celebrates the typical life of a Somerset Coalminer.  The musuem demonstrates not only the home life of the mining families but also the vibrant social, commercial and industrial structure of the past two hundred years. 

"A beautifully preserved history of the area"

"An afternoon which happily occupied grandparents, parents and grandchildren"
