Bruton Museum

Bruton Museum

Free to all

Focusing on the Somerset town's history, Bruton Museum tells stories of the local area and offers insight into the lives of those who've lived there.

Objects and subjects include fossils, flooding, Romans, Saxons, church and Abbey, education, wool, silk and other town industries.

Among famous people who lived in Bruton are author John Steinbeck and sculptor Ernst Blensdorf, and the museum stores 450 years of digitised Parish Registers. A desk belonging to Steinbeck, who spent time writing in Bruton in the 1950s, is a highlight, while the museum also provides space for changing exhibitions.
