A birthday party will be held at Weston Museum to mark its first year of opening.
The museum, in Burlington Street, opened in August last year after a £1.6million refurbishment project was completed.
Since then, it has welcomed 31,000 visitors, served about 3,200 cups of tea and fed them approximately 765 teacakes.
A team of volunteers have given 3,300 hours of their time to support it.
Visitor services manager Matthew Hardy said: “It has been a brilliant first year.
“We have overcome many challenges and we are proud of what has been achieved so far.
“Weston Museum is the hidden gem of Weston and is a space where the whole community can not only learn about their heritage, but also come together and enjoy the beautiful space.”
The museum will hold a party on August 26, from 10am-5pm, where there will be cake, party games, and a chance to learn more about the museum.
