Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society

Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society runs Dorset County Museum, a Museum dedicated to the conservation and promotion of and the education about Dorset’s history and heritage. We aim to protect Dorset’s history and make it more physically and intellectually accessible to all.

Dorset County Museum also runs clubs and community groups such as Museum Club, a monthly club for 7-14 year olds, designed to enthuse and inspire children about the Museum and Dorset's history and Museum Makers, a weekly group for adults with learning disabilities, who make things for exhibition and display in the Museum.
