PUBLISHED: 10:03 24 May 2018
Visitors are invited to walk through decades of modern history as the exhibit opens at the Grand Pier in Weston on Saturday.
The Museum of Memories will feature timeless pieces ranging from old-fashioned toys, sweets and breakfast cereals to memorabilia from television programmes and seaside trips.
The exhibition will initially take visitors back to the Victorian era continuing through a decade by decade timeline of history towards the present day.
Consumer historian, Robert Opie, said: “For many this exhibition will be a fascinating trip down memory lane, while for children it will be a stimulating educational experience.”
The museum showcase will be open over the summer period, with hopes of becoming a permanent attraction depending on public interest.
Entry to the Museum of Memories is £3. For more details, email firstname.lastname@example.org
