Weston Museum

Description

“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.”

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.

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 at the cosy Clara’s Café, 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.

Diversity is key! 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 is working towards being as accessible as possible. There is a lift for wheelchair users and those who cannot manage stairs to access the main upper floor galleries. Due to the nature of Clara’s Cottage being built in 1865, this part of the museum is unfortunately not completely accessible to wheelchair users due to narrow corridors and a staircase.

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.
