Wincanton Museum facts for kids
|Location||Wincanton, Somerset, England|
The Museum had a collection of artifacts, documents, posters and photographs related to the social history of Wincanton and the surrounding district. There was also a replica of a Victorian kitchen and a collection of 19th and 20th century farm implements. A separate room was devoted to World War I and World War II when American soldiers were stationed in the town prior to the D Day landings.
The museum closed in 2009, due to increased rents and the need for renovations to the building, reopened in the original space in 2010, and closed again in 2011. In 2012, the museum moved into the Wincanton Library with a smaller collection.
