Vikings, Romans and Victorians take over Weston Museum for one week only.

The museum, in Burlington Street, will bring back its History Week from Monday, revamping the tradition from before the attraction closed for its major £1.6million refurbishment.

Each day will focus on a different time in history, with Vikings and the medieval era just a few of the topics.

People will be able to visit the museum from Monday to watch reenactments and learn about the town and country’s past.

On Tuesday and February 15, there will be engaging history sessions with food, story-telling and games, which must be booked in advance.

Tickets cost £5 per child or £8 for two children and can be booked by calling 01934 621028.

Doors will be open from 10am- 5pm.

The museum has recently reopened with a new temporary exhibit, The Art of Expression: Facial Hair and Tattoos.
