This museum celebrates the history of Weston-super-Mare, spanning prehistoric times to the present day, using their eclectic collection of over 50,000 artefacts from the region. Housed in the former Weston Gas Light Company; the creatively restored grade II listed Victorian building is a spectacle in itself.
The Courtyard space has bridges on the first level, exposing details of the original building and opening up the the three main gallery spaces above the open ground floor. The galleries move in chronological order from the distant past right up to the present, showcasing some of the fascinating objects and uncovering stories from the collections; including geology, archaeology, art and social history.
Step back in time into an original Westonian home built in 1864 - Clara's Cottage - which is situated next to the museum and was built and displayed as it would have been in late 1800’s.
