Frome Heritage Museum

The small and compact Frome Heritage Museum depicts not just the historical fabric of Frome but also the culture, businesses and people that have formed the town and helped it thrive.

We hope to inspire you to come and visit a historical market town that continues to be treasured by those who live and work here.
