Our Work

Wellington Local History & Museum Society aims to promote knowlege about the history of this small Somerset town by organising talks and visits, running the Museum and publishing books on local topics.

In addition to its own events the Society hosts visits from schools and local community groups in the Museum and has a busy outreach programme presenting to local organisations.


The Society is delighted to reopen the museum following an extended closure due to the pandemic
