Tomorrow's Museum for Dorset will transform the Museum. The Victorian Hall and other exiting spaces will be refurbished, and an intriguing new in-fill building will double the Museum's floorspace.

The galleries will take the visitor on a compelling journey through 250 million years of history, from a time when the geographical area of present day Dorset was a hot arid desert, to the contrasting, beautiful working landscape and county we know today.
In order to create this rich and many layered learning experience we need a completely new series of galleries revealing the geological, environmental and human forces that have shaped the area over 250 million years.
