The Heritage Centre strives to hold exhibitions around South Somerset showcasing our collections when possible. These exhibitions highlight items of local history and will be noted in the news sections when one is on going.  We have a permanent display case in the foyer of the Town House in Yeovil, the current items on display are a range of objects relating to crime and punishment in Yeovil.


Events Days

The Heritage Centre also runs Finds afternoons where members of the public may bring in archaeological objects for identification by the local Finds Liaison Officer. These are normally held every 2 months and news of these will be detailed on the website as one approaches. 



Private tours can be arranged by request by calling 01935 462855 or emailing
