Fodor's Review

With an emphasis on local archeological finds (largely Roman and Iron Age), costume, and history, this museum in an Elizabethan town house charts the development of the East Dorset area. You can see how residents might have lived in the house through rooms furnished in several period styles, including a 17th-century hall and working Victorian kitchen. In the garden are displays of agricultural and horticultural tools plus a tearoom.
