Christmas is coming to the museum!
Next weekend, on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 December, we will be holding our popular Christmas event, to coincide with the final Frome Independent Market of 2023.
Our volunteers are already hard at work to fill the museum with festive cheer.
Save the date and come and join us for some festive fun, mulled wine and mince pies.
Thank you to everyone who visited our exhibitions during 2023.
We will be working on our 2024 programme during our winter closure and look forward to welcoming you when we re-open in March.
We have exciting plans for 2024 and beyond. Check in here during the winter to find out more.

The Frome Hoard is the largest coin hoard and second largest treasure hoard found to date in Britain.
It was discovered in 2010 by Dave Crisp. It contains 52,503 Roman coins contained in a ceramic pot and had been dated to the period AD 253 to 293.
We have ambitious plans for a Frome Hoard display when we re-open next year.
