Welcome to Wellington Local History & Museum Society


                                             *Coronavirus Update*

It is with regret that following the latest Public Health England guidance on Coronavirus, the decision has been taken not to reopen the Museum on April 6th.  The Museum will therefore remain closed until further notice.  All Museum events are also cancelled until further notice.  Stay safe and look out for news of when we are able to reopen and resume events.


Wellington Local History & Museum Society, based in Wellington Somerset, aims to promote knowlege about Wellington and its history by organising talks and visits, running the Museum and publishing books on local topics.

Some of the Wellington History events that have been held so far this year are described on our Recent Events page.  For upcoming events see the box to the right.

We have a fantastic local history resource; call into the museum for more details.

From April, Wellington Museum is open 6 days of the week, for details of opening hours see our Contact Us  page.
