About this event

Dorset County Museum currently faces a number of challenges, the most significant of which is that its current building stock is largely unfit for purpose.

Tomorrows Museum for Dorset will transform the museum into a leading, contemporary cultural heritage centre. The existing spaces will be refurbished and an impressive new infill building will double the museums floor space.

The £15m project has taken five years of planning and is currently halfway through the 18 month construction programme.

The event will start with a short guided “sneak peek” tour of the new museum, followed by a short presentation and light refreshments back at Shire Hall.
