Located in the heart of Frome. Excellent display of the history of Frome and surrounding villages. The staff, all volunteers, were informative and most helpful. Well worth a visit. Free entrance.

If you have an hour to spare (or less) there are interesting bits and bobs, pictures and artefacts about this interesting town. Entrance is free, but I was irritated by the not-so-subtle tactics to get me to donate.
