Jon Murden, Director said “We are delighted to be able to take our exciting new Inflatable Museum to Portland on its first visit out and about in Dorset. We hope that people will take this chance to come and see us, find out more about the development currently going on at the Museum, and enjoy the range of unique opportunities to get up close and personal with a wide range of objects from our collection.”

Emma Talbot, Head of Education and Learning added “The team at the Museum are really excited to take our Inflatable Museum to Portland! We’re looking forward to meeting the community and hope as many families as possible take the opportunity to pop along to see us. We’ll have real artefacts from our museum collection for people to handle and learn about, as well as activities for families to engage with in a fun and friendly way. For the team at the Museum, it’s also a chance to uncover what families find interesting about our museum collections and how we can make our museum as relevant and inspiring as possible to families in the future”

The Inflatable museum is an initiative of the Dorset County Museum and was created, with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Manchester Museum as an immersive learning environment designed to continue to bring the wonder and curiosity of the Museum and its fascinating collections to communities across Dorset during the Museum’s £15m redevelopment.
