ENQUIRIES & TALKS
The Museum of East Dorset is on hand to help answer your questions about the local history and heritage of the area.
Local History Research
The museum’s library has a large collection of resources relating to life in Wimborne Minster and East Dorset. We have census details, trade directories, parish magazines, local ephemera, photographs and much more. There is also a large selection of local history and reference books.
Our curators can give illustrated talks on a variety of topics, including the history of the building, the local area and its collections. To ensure compliance with current government guidelines, we would be happy to discuss the most appropriate way to deliver these talks on a case-by-case basis, whether they be in person or remotely.
For further information please call 01202 882533 or email us at [email protected].
Whether they’re beavering away behind the scenes to maintain the collections, the garden and book shop, greeting you with a smiling face front of house or brewing you a drink in the tea rooms - these volunteers proudly support every element of the organisation.
With boundless energy and enthusiasm, volunteers of all ages and abilities provide invaluable assistance, enabling us to continue our work.
The Museum of East Dorset is an organisation at the heart of the local community. Our services are designed to draw on our historical resources and share them for the benefit of the community.
To deliver this ambition, we work in partnership with several local organisations.
