While Dorset County Museum is closed for its exciting redevelopment, we’ll be popping up at schools across the county in magnificent inflatable form. We would love to come and visit you!

With real artefacts from our collection, learn all about the Romans in Dorset in an exciting, vibrant and immersive learning environment aimed at KS2.

Our schools programme provides pupils with a unique and immersive experience where you will have the opportunity to handle real objects from the Museum’s collection and learn about the Romans in Dorset in a fun and engaging way.

Bringing children and young people to a facilitated workshop in a museum is a very special experience.

We are busy selecting objects that best meet the needs of learners, and developing challenging and enjoyable workshops for children and young people to take part in when we reopen in 2020.
