Hard hats, high vis and hitting the heights!

We are really excited that team members, Kristina Broughton and Dr Anjana Khatwa, are speakers at the Museum Ideas Conference 2020 – a highly prestigious international event!
As it’s a virtual conference, they produced a video in which they discuss how museums can better engage with underserved audiences. It was recorded at Dorset Museum, still a construction site, by the museum’s new Head of Marketing, David Goulden. Impressive partnership effort!


The whole Museum Ideas Conference is online and free this year due to Covid-19. This is the impressive line-up of talks.

Wild Life in the Red

What do you think about our exhibition?

Sawfish are also called carpenter sharks...but they are rays, not sharks!

There’s also a species called a sawshark, but that’s, well, a shark!

What the heck is a lek?

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.

Road Runner!

The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.

Belly Buster!

The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
