Dorset Museum

Founded in 1845, Dorset Museum is currently closed for a major transformation project. The Victorian Hall and other existing spaces are being refurbished, and an intriguing new infill building will double the museum’s floor space.

A suite of inspirational new galleries will collectively tell the story of 250 million years of Dorset’s history, and display collections of national and international significance for the first time. The collections range from geology to Roman remains, Victorian life to Wessex literature.
