    We heavily rely on donations to keep resouces, artefacts and the Museum's clean and tidy. With your support, through volunteering or fundrasing and donations we can really exemplify the environment destined for learning about our Railway for all generations.

Our Schools Programme at the Gauge Museum offers clear curriculum links to both History and STEM subjects. Choose from our range of Loans Boxes and Resource Packs, or join us for a Learning Session or self-guided visit.

What better way to round off your learning experience than to feel for yourself the power of a steam locomotive as you travel through the beautiful Somerset countryside? The Railway offers a range of possible routes on our line, allowing you to tailor your visit in terms of time and expense.

We know that these are uncertain and difficult times for everybody.  To help keep young children busy and support parents and carers, our education team have put together a series of STEM-related learning challenges for you to download and complete at home.
