Your Museum

At Weston Museum not only can you can explore inspiring galleries that will ignite your curiosity, we also create events to make memories for years to come.

We believe that a Museum isn’t a collection of old artefacts, it is the identity of our town. Understanding our history plays a key role in improving our future.

Here at Weston Museum, we don’t just recall life, we live it.

We are the makers of memories from big events such as weddings, to the care from our volunteers, to the education of children, and the home of new friendships over a coffee in Clara’s cafe.

We all are Weston Museum, the sum total of ‘our town’.

The museum is dedicated to being a social and educational hub for the people of Weston and its visitors. You can come to learn, relax or just have fun! The North Somerset Council museum collection contains around 50,000 individual objects. The newly refurbished museum also allows our guests to grab lunch, hire a space for a meeting or even a party in the courtyard.

Museum’s do not have to be dull and dusty, in fact, Weston museum encourages a hands-on approach to history. We also work closely with local schools and community groups to help support the Weston of today and grow the Weston of tomorrow. Our diverse volunteering programme also gives you the chance to get involved.

Our William Mable Gallery allows us, for the first time, to host exhibitions suitable for the world stage. We’ve already been able to display items from the Imperial War Museum and The British Museum. The content of this gallery changes throughout the year, so there is always something new at Weston Museum.

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.
