In the museum can be seen many different types of flatner, plus nets and other items associated with their use. There are displays of maps, knotwork and boards showing the various uses of withy.
There are activities specially designed for children such as the block and tackle where even the smallest child can lift much more than expected!
The Museum is housed in the historic Old Goods Shed, built in 1862 when Watchet was the terminus of the West Somerset railway
