“The country yokel experience”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

A great place to visit. Lots to see and a nice atmosphere. The town centre is close by as is Glastonbury Tor and the Chalice Well so this can all go to make a good day family out.

“Delve into Glastonbury history for free!”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

A small rural museum that will keep you absorbed for a couple of hours or more. Friendly staff that go out of their way to make children welcome. Great rural craft film. Cafe has lovely cakes and scones. Worth a visit and no entrance fee but please give them a donation to make sure it's there for others to enjoy!
