Private and Corporate Hire

The Museum is one of Weston’s most iconic venues

Our hireable rooms are suitable for most types of private and corporate hire (including exhibitions). Our impressive architecture creates the perfect backdrop for your chosen event. Our dedicated Functions team is on hand to help fulfil your vision.

Located a short walk from the beach and the High Street, and within walking distance from the train station, local bus routes and even multi-storey car parks, the Museum is a centrally located venue.

The glass roof in our main Courtyard allows plenty of natural light into this historic, charming venue.

Our three hire spaces are suitable for almost every occasion, and the spaces lend themselves beautifully to be styled however you wish. Our spaces provide a unique setting for corporate events and meetings, parties, family celebrations and more.

The Courtyard

Weston Museum Court Yard

At the heart of the Museum is the Courtyard. From the cobbled floor to the striking glass roof, this truly unique space gives off the ‘wow factor’ that you are looking for in your chosen event. 

Please Note: The Courtyard is only available for hire after opening hours, or for week-long exhibitions. This is because the Courtyard is the main hub of the Museum and is needed for the public to access all of our facilities.

  • Capacity: 100 (capacity will change depending on layout)
  • Dimensions: 19m x 7m

“In the old gas-works building which gives it character and a lovely, light atrium.”
