What a fantastic museum! Truly a hidden gem. My tour guide was very well informed, I found the history fascinating (who knew we had this many important events in Taunton’s past?), and the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Great overview of Taunton/Old Colony history and heritage. Person behind the reception desk was very helpful and knowledgeable and gave a free tour. Museum was substantial but not large and could be covered in 90 min

As interesting as the museum's contents were, including furniture, tools, clothing weapons, etc.,from as early as the 1600s, it was our guide, Liz Bernier, that made this expierence so educational and enjoyable.
