Eldridge Pope Brewery

Brewery Square

Come and see us at Brewery Square open Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm.

The doors to the first temporary museum opened on Saturday 20th October in Dorchester’s Brewery Square, launching ‘Tomorrow’s Museum For Dorset On Tour’ which is set to inspire, educate and entertain the local community.

This first collaboration starts with an exciting exhibition of Eldridge Pope Brewery, where visitors can delve in to the local history exploring objects, pictures and a model of the working brewery.

The lease was agreed until early 2019, but due to the success of the location it has been extended until 2nd June 2019.

While our iconic building in High West Street is closed for its exciting redevelopment, its Victorian structure will be popping up at schools and community events across the county in magnificent inflatable form.

Bringing with it collections from the Museum which would otherwise be in storage, the 11m long x 9.5m wide and 4m high sized inflatable will excite, engage and inspire visitors through a range of exhibitions and fascinating interactive workshops. 

Heading on tour summer 2019, come along and join in the fun at an event near you! Tour dates coming soon.
