Big Dig!

Imagine what it is like to be a paleontologist digging for fossils and learn about our ancient past in this special family friendly event. Meet a Tyrannosaurus Rex and have your photo taken dressed as a dinosaur!

Children can dig for finds in our Big Dig pits and match them up to identify the creatures that lived on the earth millions of years ago, before exploring the galleries and marvelling at some amazing real fossil specimens from the local area. On the Saturday, we will also be visited by a scary Tyrannosaurus Rex called ‘Titch’, who will be spending the day in our courtyard. Children can dress up like a dinosaur and have their picture taken with this almost life size dinosaur!

There is no need to book for this event and there is no charge to join in, just drop in throughout the day on the Saturday (10-5) or Sunday (10-4).

For more information, just contact the museum team.

Heritage Open Days – Fortune Telling and Tours @ Weston Museum
Sep 15 @ 10:00 – 17:00
Heritage Open Days - Fortune Telling and Tours @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

Have your fortune revealed by our Victorian fortune teller and learn about Weston Museum’s recent refurbishment project on a guided tour of the galleries and some behind the scenes areas.

For this weekend only, there are lots of things to learn about, including both the museum and your own future. The Victorian seaside has a long history of sideshows and performers and in the afternoon between 1pm and 3pm on both days, you can have your fortune revealed by our Victorian fortune teller.
You can also join one of the museum team on a tour around the galleries and to some of the behind the scenes areas that might be included in the second stage of the refurbishment. Tour times to be confirmed, see event listings closer to the date.

Weston Museum has a history that stretches back over a century, but it has recently had a wonderful refurbishment to bring its displays and facilities up to date. With new galleries, a new shop and cafe, as well as new learning, reminiscence and outreach programmes, the museum now has lots to offer. Learn about the history of the museum and see the artifacts that inspired the museum’s founder to begin preserving the history of the local area in a way that was accessible to all.

Both the fortune telling activities and guided tours are free, but please be aware that numbers are limited so arrive in good time to avoid disappointment.
