Weymouth Museum Reopens Today

Brewers

10:04am 11th December 2013

Weymouth Museum re-opens its doors for the first time today after being closed for 2 years.

The site at Brewers Quay has been revamped by volunteers.

The museum has a history timeline of Weymouth plus maritime artefacts and loot from shipwrecks that includes 200 year old ivory tusks.

Volunteer David Riches says the tusks are a particular draw;

"The tusks are over 200 years old and were washed up on Chesil beach following a shipwreck."

David also told us they now have an area for children to learn too;

"For the first time we have a children’s corner, they can go in there and take a look at where their school is on a map and they can try on a variety of hats from different ages in history. There's a chart on the wall where they can learn about the hats and their history."
