Welcome to Castle Cary Museum

The museum in Castle Cary is found in the historic Market House, a splendid mid-Victorian building in the centre of town.

We have a large collection of domestic and agricultural implements, archaeological and historical information and artifacts. Displays include; our geology section showing that this area of Somerset was once under the sea; the life of diarist Parson James Woodforde; Douglas Macmillan, the founder of Macmillan Cancer Support; T S Donne’s Rope and Twine Works; and John Boyd’s Horsehair Weaving factory. We also mount other temporary displays of topical interest.

The museum is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions and staffed by volunteers.
