Another small, free museum. Watchet is only average and the things to there are only average - apart from the parking costs and they are high.

Although a small museum it is crammed full of very interesting boats, history and a gentleman who could really tell a story.

Quaint little museum. Very interesting, set in a quaint little fishing harbour. I loved it as it’s quite old school

Watchet clearly embraces its history as this is another small free museum. It won’t take long to walk around & gives a good insight into Watchet’s boating/seafaring history. It is free,but don’t forget to give a donation.
