Blake Museum is a 16th century house located in the heart of Bridgwater, a historic market
town and port, first mentioned as Brugie in the Domesday Book of 1086. The Museum was
first opened to the public in 1926 and it is said that Robert Blake, the town's most famous
citizen, was born in the house in 1598.
Blake Museum is the local museum for archaeology and history of Bridgwater.
With the collections covering Bridgwater and the surrounding areas, we have fascinating
displays waiting for you to discover.
You are welcome to bring your own food and enjoy a picnic in the museum garden or take a
stroll in the adjoining Blake Gardens
