Support us

Dorset Museum is a charity that relies totally on support from individuals, companies, charitable trusts, The Arts Council and The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Our recent refurbishment was only possible because of such donations.

You can help us by volunteering, becoming a member or making a regular or one-off donation.

Whichever way you support us you make the museum even better – your gifts mean we can carry out research and conservation, acquire new objects, stage new exhibitions or develop our considerable work in education.

Please explore our Support pages and consider making a gift.

Thank you.


The Victorian Hall will be hosting a private event on Friday 10th June 2022, all day and Saturday 11th June 2022, 12 noon to 5:00 pm, and therefore will be closed to visitors.
