If you are interested in learning the history of the area then the Weymouth Museum is the perfect place for you to do just that.
They have a huge array of artefacts dating back to as early as the Roman era. All of the artefacts have been found throughout the Weymouth and the Melcombe Regis area.
The museum currently occupies temporary galleries in Brewers Quay. The quay itself is a historic building awaiting renovation and the perfect backdrop for the museum.
