Attraction Information

Go back in time and discover the history of Dorset at Weymouth Museum. Explore the galleries and exhibitions and we’re certain you’ll find something to inspire mini minds.

Kids will feel like pirates learning about the town’s seaside stories, and in the specially designed children’s corner they can look like them too with elaborate fancy dress. There are also plenty of play ship models which will certainly help in getting their sea legs up to speed!

In the museum, you’ll find goods that fell from shipwrecked vessels in the 17th century - what wonders of the deep will you uncover? A message in a bottle, or one full of grog?! It’s also a great spot for aspiring artists with picturesque coastal paintings on display. They can see the work of the masters and get practising.

  • Perfect for mini pirates
