Connecting With The Community

Minehead Museum is very much a product of its local community – inspired by them, supported by Friends, and run entirely by local volunteers.

One of the many benefits of having a museum in Minehead is being able to welcome young people from community groups and local schools to give them the opportunity to learn about the history of the town.


We’ve been delighted to be supported by our local Tesco; with the Tesco Community ‘Bags of Help’ scheme 2018/19 funding our Intergenerational project.

Legacies from this project include the Museum booklet ‘Memories of Minehead’ and a partnership with the Children’s University.

Hinkley Point

Another important relationship has been with Hinkley Point, via the Somerset Community Fund, we have received financial help from the Hinkley Point C Community Impact Fund.




Children’s University

In 2019 a partnership was formed with the Children’s University and the museum became an accredited Learning Centre. Our age-appropriate quizzes have proved popular.
