Looking at the street frontage of Dorset County Museum, you could be forgiven for not realising just how much is contained inside!

The Museum has an array of fascinating galleries, dealing with a wide range of subjects from the natural sciences and geology to art, history and literature. The galleries include many video displays, interactive exhibits and activity carts for children. To find out more about what we have in store for you on a visit to Dorset County Museum visit the links below.

With effect from Monday 4 December 2017, access to both the Victorian Hall and Dorchester Gallery will be restricted. We are commencing the decant of artefacts in preparation for Dippy's Arrival. We apologise for the disruption. For more information CLICK HERE
