Welcome to Weston Museum

In response to the latest Government announcement, we are sorry to report that Weston Museum will remain closed to the public for the time being. We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can.

We have also created a programme of entertainment and educational content online, please enjoy via our website, YouTube channel and our Facebook page.

Discover the history of Weston-super-Mare at Weston Museum. Housed in a beautiful and distinctive historic building. We tell the story of the town and the surrounding area from prehistoric times to the present day.

Once you know your history you understand more of who you are, you learn from the past and find ways to predict the future and even help create a better one.

Weston Museum’s free admission means that the museum is truly for everyone and is quickly becoming a popular destination among tourists as one of Weston’s top attractions.
