Behind the Scenes at Bridport Museum

Event details

Thursday 13th September, 10:00am - Thursday 13th September, 11:30am


180 years of rocks and fossils, 2000 years of people, 800 years of ropemaking… and one tiger!

Did you know that Bridport Museum cares for around 20,000 items, of which only a small percentage are on permanent display?

This is a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes and find out how the Museum cares for its collections. Visitors will also given the chance to handle some of the hidden treasures.

There are two tours during the day: 10am-11.30am, and 2-3.30pm.

Tours are limited to 10 people on each and must be pre-booked by calling the office on 01308 458703 or email us. The tours are free but donations are welcomed to support our work as a charity.

This is a special event organised as part of Heritage Open Days and Dorset Architectural Heritage Week.
