#20 of 70 in Museums in Somerset
Bakelite is the pioneer of plastics, invented in 1907, and so immensely successful that its products touched every aspect of the twentieth century life from the cradle to the grave. The Bakelite Museum shows a huge collection of Bakelite and other early plastics, in a wonderful array of forms and colours, along with non-plastic items of the Bakelite era. It's a design museum of the 20th century, displayed among the workings of a historic watermill in the beautiful Somerset countryside.
