Wells & Mendip Museum

The Museum was formed in 1893 and has the objective of “maintaining a museum for the benefit of the public of the city of Wells and the Mendip area, and advancing the education of the public in the conservation, protection and improvement of the historical & natural environment of the Wells and Mendip area”. The principle of "Search and Learn" was behind the establishment of the Wells Natural History and Archaeological Society and the Museum, in order to encourage the people of Wells to explore their local environment. That principle remains at the core of the Museums activities today.
