Weston Museum's ever popular History Week is back! From Monday to Friday during February half term holiday, there will be different eras moving through time up to the Twentieth Century, with re-enactors and the chance to immerse yourself in historical living.  The museum is free entry and the events will take place in our lovely covered courtyard area or in the Learning Room off the courtyard.  Both are near to the Cafe and toddlers play area.

History Week events are free on some days with bookable sessions taking place on other days for a small charge. Please head to the museum’s website for details on prices and booking.

On Monday, you can meet a Roman, learn about what life was like under the rule of the empire and even have a go at some military marching.  This event is free of charge and pre-booking is not required, so just turn up and enjoy an Ancient Roman day with the children.

On Tuesday, you can take part in a Viking experience, where children can dress up like a Viking, try some food, play a game and listen to a story.  The museum is free entry, but this session must be booked in advance and takes place in our Learning Space. Tickets cost £5 per child or £8 for 2 children (accompanying adults are free, but there is only space for 1 adult per child).

On Wednesday, the children will meet some Medieval ancestors and learn about what life was like before our modern, industrial world.  This event is free of charge and does not require pre-booking, so just turn up and enjoy!

On Thursday, you can take part in a Victorian experience, where children can dress up like a Victorian, try their hand at washing chores or see if they would survive in a Victorian school room with a strict teacher! You can then try some food, play some games and hear a story from the time.  The museum is free entry, but this session must be booked in advance and takes place in our Learning Space. Tickets cost £5 per child or £8 for 2 children (accompanying adults are free, but there is only space for 1 adult per child).

On Friday, you can learn about life in both the First and Second World Wars, see some of the weapons and hear about life on the home front. This event is free of charge and pre-booking is not required.
