Bring your class, or let us come to you!

We never stop learning at Bridport Museum and we love to share what we know. Let us help enrich your learning experience.

Visiting the Museum

Bridport Museum is free of charge, so you are very welcome to bring a class, but it’s worth letting us know beforehand. We don’t have space for eating lunches, so we suggest you use the Town Hall which is free, and also has toilets.

You can find information about booking the Town Hall here.
