Shop icon Study area icon Wheelchair access icon

The Museum contains relics from the former Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway, which ran from Bath to Bournemouth with branchlines to Highbridge, Burnham on Sea, Wells and Bridgwater until closing in 1966.

A Railway Remembered: Explore the mass of exhibits, ponder the old station names and soak up the evocative atmosphere. Step back in time as you operate the levers in the reconstructed Midford Signal Box.

Artefacts on show include station nameboards, lamps, tools, signalling equipment, tickets, photographs, handbills, rolling stock and steam locomotives.
