Pop-up museum success at Brewery Square

'Tomorrow’s Museum for Dorset' has welcomed 10,000 visitors over its eight month stay.  

Jon Murden, director at Dorset County Museum, said:

“We have engaged a much wider and diverse audience during our stay at Brewery Square with entrance and activities completely free, a new accessible and welcoming exterior, and re-imagined visitor experience.

“We have held specific events for community groups including Museum Makers, a group of participants with learning disabilities, and Dorchester Family Partnership Zone, for vulnerable families.”

The inflatable replica of the museum will now tour the county, including schools, while the High Street premises undergoes renovation.

Equipped with real artefacts from its collections, it will allow children to learn about topics such as the Romans in Dorset within a vibrant and immersive learning environment.
