Dorset County Museum Review

This labyrinthine museum contains ancient Celtic remains from nearby Maiden Castle and Roman remains from town, a rural crafts gallery, and a local-history gallery. It's better known for its large collection of Hardy memorabilia, and there's a gallery focusing on the nearby Jurassic Coast.
