Welcome to Minehead Museum

There is something of interest for everyone here, whether you are in Minehead for your holidays or living nearby. Find our unique museum in The Beach Hotel, opposite Minehead’s Steam Railway station.

Experience the fascinating history of Minehead and Alcombe through our collection of exhibits. We tell the stories of the Hobby Horse, the much-missed outdoor Swimming Pool, world-famous author Sir Arthur C. Clarke, the Lifeboats and the lost Edwardian pier. Plus many other exhibits.
