About this location

The Dorset County Museum is where the story of Dorset's rich landscape unfolds in a range of fascinating displays. The Show more… Museum was founded in 1846 to help protect and record the county's unique historical and natural environment.

Today visitors to the Museum can find out about local writers, history, archaeology, geology and the natural sciences in one of the Museum's many galleries. There are also video displays, activity carts for children and an audio-guide to take you round the exhibits.

The Museum is housed in a beautiful, gothic-style building, which dates from 1884. Its diverse collections include Roman mosaics, original Thomas Hardy manuscripts and fossilised dinosaur footprints. And behind the scenes there is a great deal more...

The Museum is an ideal place to come if you are visiting Dorset, and a great place for local people to find out more about where they live.
