Weymouth Museum


Weymouth Museum is presently closed to the public except for its local history and information services. During the redevelopment of Brewers Quay it is being moved within the complex to a temporary location where it will open a gallery to the public on 1 March 2018.

The museum is a local history museum for Weymouth and the surrounding area, run entirely by volunteers. It has a sizeable collection of artefacts and ephemera relating to this area. The collection is particularly strong in art (especially local topographical), local trades and industry, maritime items and local history ephemera (including postcards, photographs and guide books).

Museum volunteers are willing to help with local history and family history enquiries.

Opening Times

Wednesday to Saturday, 10.30 am to 4 pm when the museum reopens in March 2018


There are a number of talks that volunteers give on behalf of the museum.
