Enjoyed our visit friendly helpful staff. Mainly the collection of one man the local doctor. Blown away by some of the Quill work. When you've finished in the Museum there's a pleasant walk you can take in the grounds around the lake.

I went in to check out some of Bridgewaters history. None of the exhibits that I saw had to do with Bridgewater but had to do with the surrounding communities. Very disappointed.
