FAMILIES travelled back in time for the final event at Weston Museum before it closes for refurbishment.

The broken time machine event was held at museum in Burlington Street throughout the Easter holidays, and there were a host of activities for children to enjoy, including crafts and re-enactments.

Visitors had to piece together the parts of the museum’s broken time machine to bring it back to the present day.

Museum supervisor Katherine Cutlan said: “It has gone really well. Lots of people have enjoyed it.

“The highlights included the living history sections, with people re-enacting characters from the past and bringing history to life.

“Some of the characters from previous events came back for the event as it was our final one before we close.”

Each day had a different theme, with each covering a different 
time period such as World War One and the Iron Age.

The museum will close on Saturday for a two-year refurbishment after securing a £1million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Other events outside the museum are being planned during the next two years while it is closed.

The museum will hold an open day on Saturday from 10am-4pm, and entry will be free.
