A video introducing Weston Museum:
Weston-super-Mare Town Council took ownership of the museum from North Somerset County Council in April 2011 and wasted no time in making a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to make major improvements. The bid was successful and the building has undergone a major £1.2 Million refurbishment and redesign. Weston Museum reopened in 2017 with new permanent and temporary exhibition spaces, a learning room, Clara’s cottage and a cafe. The collection is presented in an entirely new way too.
Weston-super-Mare Town Council owns the museum and is responsible for the day to day running and funding, North Somerset Council owns the museum’s collection of artefacts which are then stored, managed and cared for by the South West Heritage Trust. Weston Museum tells the story of Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset to a whole new generation of residents and visitors. For more information on events, space hire and the collection please visit the Weston Museum website.
