Founded in 1926, and still in its original building, Bridgwater Museum is situated in a quiet back street of Bridgwater. The museum is housed in the reputed birthplace of Robert Blake, Cromwell’s General-at-Sea. With the collections covering Bridgwater and the surrounding areas, The Blake Museum has fascinating displays waiting for you to discover.
The Museum was established:
• To rescue from loss or destruction of the ancestors.
• To collect, preserve, conserve and to show relics of history relating (principally but not exclusively) to Bridgwater and its immediate surroundings.
• To show visitors that it is not indifferent to its own history.
• To interest visitors in what has happened to Bridgwater since it was granted its Royal Charter in the reign of King John.
• To give the townspeople a pride in their past.
• To reveal that great events have taken place within the town and adjacent areas and set them in the context of the history of England.
• To honour the lives of great men and woman who have been associated with the town, and, in particular but not exclusively, Robert Blake.
