  • When the sun is shining and an indoor venue is full of mothers and children, you know that it must be very popular. Weston Park Museum is such a place. It sits in pleasant parkland opposite the Weston...  more »

  • Fantastic place, especially good with our four year old daughter. There is also a café and it is adjacent to a park to run around. Will go again, especially on a rainy day. Parking can be a challenge!
  • Nice big museum, good for all ages. Exhibits don't change often but that's understandable. Don't try to feed your toddlers in the museum itself, you will be hunted down by staff. Cafe is ridiculously expensive, parking is horrendous.
  • Any free entry museum that packs loads of history and interactive things for the kids is a winner for me. The cafe is pretty good too. Picnic area is a bit small and parking isn't great.
  • Free to enter! Hands on things for children to get involved with! Love going back in time about our city ! More of this please about How We Used to live ! Less of all those big photos in the other gallery! It's a case of in and out for me in that section! Heard enough about immigration ! Boring ! Great gift shop. Cafe is OK for light snacks and drinks but wouldn't waste money eating a meal here! Dissatisfied with menu. It's the sort of food you eat then think why didn't we go elsewhere! Fantastic,spacious park land for all or kiddies to enjoy running safely around !
  • This is a fave and regular place for a family adventure. Theres always something new and exciting to explore. Things often get changed and moved around ready for new items being put on display. Theres toilets here also, a grand field for ur family picnics and also a cafe here if u just fancied a coffee after a good few hours of discovery. Great for kids to learn new things. And a beautiful gift shop at the end of touring is always nice to visit - has some lovely items available to purchase. Great for tourists if u are just visiting especially if u have a child/children. You can also have the option to have ur name on the western park museum board for everyone to see if you are donating the museum.
