Rotunda Museum Review

One of the country's first purpose-built museums, this extraordinary cylindrical building was constructed in 1829 to house Jurassic fossils and minerals collected nearby. Designed by William Smith, known as "the father of English geology," it now displays important archaeological finds and local history collections. One exhibition showcases evidence of local dinosaurs, such as bones and footprints.
