Weymouth museums are a popular attraction on the Jurassic Coast. There’s plenty of military hardware, local history and artifacts on display.

Make sure you plan a visit to Weymouth Museum in Hope Square which reflects the physical, cultural and economic history of the area.

Overlooking and guarding Weymouth Harbour is the Napoleonic Nothe Fort which not only provides real-location information but has both live displays, historical days and events. This historic venue can also be booked for Weddings and other social events.

The Tudor House in Trinity Street (just around the corner from Hope Square) is a ‘living museum’ of a Tudor merchant’s house, where small groups and individuals are shown around by members of the Weymouth Civic Society, who are full of knowledge and information, and are only too pleased to answer your questions.
