North Somerset Museum

Weston-super-Mare's rather splendid little North Somerset Museum is under threat of closure. Again.

The place, which is very imaginatively laid out, lurks in the old Gas Company offices in Orchard Street and is sadly missed by a lot of the resort's visitors. Admittedly, most people go to W-s-M for things other than going around a Museum but regular visitors, some from the Midlands and South Wales, are interested in the town's background and it provides a good "all weather" attraction, which is important in the sometimes fickle British seaside climate.

A pity therefore that it doesn't open on Sundays, surely one of the town's busiest days, at least in summer.
