Tomorrow's Museum for Dorset
Client: Dorset County Museum
Having succeeded in securing Round 2 Heritage Lottery Funding earlier this year this exciting project is now in its delivery stages. The project includes four new galleries, a learning centre, library and an archive space in the basement which will give the public access to the entire collection for the first time.
The four galleries in the new extension will draw on the Museum’s world class collections and deliver stories and themes that are centred on geology, people and fine art, with the fourth dedicated to Thomas Hardy. Whilst the much improved visitor facilities will include a new café, shop and learning base.
The museum is due to open in autumn 2020.
