The Information Centre was founded by a team of volunteers in 1980 in a redundant bar at the Kings Head Hotel in Wimborne Minster. It was moved to its current location in the historic house in 1990. Following the recent major refurbishment project, the Information Centre was fully integrated into the Museum of East Dorset. Today, 40 years on, our staff and volunteers continue to welcome thousands of visitors a year.
To help you make the most of your visit to the beautiful south coast, we offer a wide range of free local information as well as books and maps to purchase.
Ask us for up to date information on what’s going on at the museum and further afield. Our team of volunteers has a wealth of knowledge about the local area and is always on hand to offer tips and advice. Fancy a coach day trip out? We can help with this too.
