Visit the Shop at Dorset Museum to view a wide range of bespoke gifts, stationery, souvenirs, and local products to remember your visit or to buy that special someone a unique gift.
The shop also stocks a wealth of pocket money items for children ranging from favourites such as wooden toys, precious stones, fossils and of course some cuddly friends.
We strive to stock local and unique products that are not sold everywhere. We are continuously looking to work with local businesses and bring the best of what Dorset has to offer to the shop.
We have also worked with our curatorial team to draw inspiration and ideas from all aspects of our collections and landscapes across the county from land, sea, and artifacts to create a range of truly unique and beautiful products to be shared with our visitors.
Where ever possible we use local designers and suppliers to design and create these collections.
Your purchases support our work to look after all the treasures within the museum and bring new and exciting things to the county and the local community.
