  • Museums and Art Galleries icon Museums and Art Galleries

Suitable for ages: Young Children (4-8), Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)

Venue type: Indoor

Market House Museum is located where the Esplanade meets Market Street and occupies the ground floor of Watchet's former Market House.
Today the Museum houses many of the artefacts associated with the history and culture of Watchet and tells the story of local industry, the Sea and the People. There is so much to see, including a nearly complete Ichthyosaur, which is millions of years old!
The kids will love the numerous fossils on display around the museum, all which have been found locally, many by people walking the foreshore. There is also a lot to learn in the Pre History and Saxon and Vikings collection.
The museum is also packed with exhibits, paintings, photos and books so there is something for all ages. If you or the kids have any questions, you can ask the knowledgeable and enthusiatic volunteers who run the museum and they will be happy to help.
Although this is small museum, there is a lot to see and learn about so it is well worth a visit.
