Not easy to distinguish the museum from the Antiques/Collectibles Emporium. It is marked up fairly well, but the two seem to merge if you take a wrong turning. It was interesting to see the historical photographs and some of the undoubtedly priceless artefacts.

Fascinating collection of items and displays. We also visited last year and they do seem to regularly update the displays. Great place to bring the kids on a wet afternoon and certainly excellent value for money.

The museum is small but exhibits are well presented with plenty of explanations. The entrance fee was only £1, so very good value.

Took a walk around this museum with the Brewers Quay old building, don't it's been open too long, some very interesting items in there and some good facts and figures too, cheap to get in to, but not very big at the moment. Believe there are plans to extend it.

We visited here 16/8/16, we were greeted by 2 lovely ladies, it cost us £2.00 to get in (kids are free) , it was very interesting and had some good exhibits, the only downside is that it's upstairs(we didn't see a lift ) & if you are in a wheelchair or can't manage the stairs it becomes a problem!

Difficult to access unless you can climb stairs and not easy to find. Staffed by volunteers but the place has plenty of information, albeit many items duplicated

Small but very interesting with plenty of old photographs of the town and a wide selection of artefacts. All this for just £1.oo.

The current displays in Weymouth Museum are just a part of what the town has in its store and if eventually the museum rooms are expanded even more can be displayed. What is there is interesting, and has been changed since our last visit some 5 years ago. There is an eclectic mix of items and information about Weymouth's history... More

You could spend a short time to a long time depending on how much time was available. there is so much to see here at the Brewers Quay, it takes you back to your childhood days!!, and reminds you of many things that you could have forgotten until you can see them there in front of you. An excellent place... More

we got off the bus and we were at the brewery quay so decided to stop in at the Museum and to look at Weymouth of years gone by. it was a trip back down memory lane for my wife as she spent a lot of time here during the summers many years ago.
