The Dorset County Museum appears small, with several interesting galleries on different floors. The staff is very knowledgeable and can explain the exhibits inside. The first gallery has a mosaic Roman floor, which is largely fascinating, especially the works of Thomas Hardy. There is a cafe where you can read books and surf the Internet.
The Dorset County Museum is the world’s largest Hardy Collection Museum, which houses Hardy’s letters and precious altered handwriting. In addition, there are also collections of dinosaur fossils from the Jurassic period and archaeological excavations from Maidenburg.
What a beautiful museum with a rich collection
