What’s On?

Spent over two and a half hours looking at all the interesting exhibits. I think Chard should be proud of this Museum

One of the most comprehensive collections of rural crafts . A credit to all concerned in providing a window on Chard’s past

“Excellent local museum”    Brian Fifield

“A time capsule for a lovely town”

I really enjoyed going to Chard museum with the rest of year four. I especially liked the dress bit upstairs. Thank you for making our visit the best day ever.

I have driven past Chard Musuem 100 s of times but today I visited it.

What a Treat !  First off it could be Dr. Who`s Tardis – being much, much larger upon the inside than it appeared upon the outside. So much so you are given a map to find your way around. It takes you back to times in Somerset History long gone by. I liked the originality and “rawness” of the displays. The mixture of artefacts and the way they are presented offers something for everyone. Lovely staff who were helpful and very informative. Oh and where was the first powered flight in the world “CHARD” – visit the museum for a “time warp”experience. I had a great time.

I was so impressed with this delightful local museum that I became a trustee!  Linda Vijeh

Have finally come in after years of passing by – wish we’d come sooner! Absolutely fascinating – and vast! Must be a lot of hard work – many thanks
