Wonderful museum, with the personal touch of how life was like in the Victorian era. There is also Clara's Cottage containing original furniture, artefacts, etc.

“This Museum gets better and Better”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

We visited the museum again this year, once over the Easter Period and once on the first Bank Holiday in May. Our Kids love the museum and really enjoy the events they put on, Easter was Science and Discovery the staff where very helpful explaining all the activities and it fill a few hours we also enjoyed the Punch and Judy Show. They have now introduce a new competition to find the hidden Donkey around the Museum what a great idea, another few hours of enjoyment with the kids actually looking at the displays both for the hidden Donkeys and exhibits.

Good luck Weston Museum hope you get the Lottery money things can only get better for you all.

“Good overview of its history”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Interesting building, with well presented history items. I thought the bit about the 2nd WW was a bit thin, surely more happened then...! Nice cakes in the caf!
