Crewkerne Museum

Organisation: Museum

Collections held: Prisons

Dates: 1850-1899

As a small local history museum we specialise in the social and industrial history of Crewkerne and district.  The only crime and punishment records are within local newspapers that we own and also a display in a gallery of the cell door from the local Police Station before it was relocated, and a mock up of a prisoner and his true story.

Market Square, Crewkerne TA18 7LP
