Organisation Description

Weston 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.
