From Aerosols to Waterloo, discover Wellington's rich history

Coronavirus Update

Unfortunately due to the coronavirus pandemic the Museum is currently closed (and is likely to remain so for the rest of this year). Watch this space for news of when we are able to reopen our doors.

Wellington Local History & Museum Society run this small family-friendly museum located in the centre of town.


The museum's collection chronicles the town's rich history – including its links to the Duke of Wellington; the development of, what was once, the South West’s biggest woollen mill;  the transformation of the townscape, and, how Wellington was home to the last provincial bank in England and Wales to issue its own banknotes.
