Weston Museum in Burlington Street is about to reopen its doors after being closed during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The opening times from 13th August 2020 are that Weston Museum will be open to the public on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 12pm until 4pm.

Over time, Weston Museum hopes to be able to extend it’s opening times allowing the people of Weston-super-Mare and its visitors more opportunity to experience everything it has to offer.

Whilst the museum cannot currently hold indoor events, they will continue to provide a host of free activities online for the whole family to enjoy and a new website for the Museum will be launched in a few days.

Despite of the restrictions in place, visitors will still be able to enjoy coffee and cake from Clara’s Café and browse our unique range of gifts in our shop.

“We cannot wait to open our doors again and welcome back the community of Weston-super-Mare and its visitors. Our top priority is the safety of our guests, staff and volunteers. As a result, a series of safety measures will be in place.”

Matt Hardy, Visitor Services Manager.

“This has been a challenging few months for employees and volunteers. Weston Museum is not merely bones and dust from past centuries but is a living attraction allowing local people, children, students and visitors to interact with our town’s fascinating story. During lockdown we haven’t been resting on our laurels but have taken the opportunity to proceed with the next phase of gallery extension work as our museum continues to expand. It will be a real pleasure welcoming visitors back to this people’s museum, albeit within healthy guidelines”.
