For a historian this is a delightful local museum with well displayed information. Helpful, friendly staff who are rightfully proud of their museum. Currently there is an excellent display about the Suffrage movement and the local connections.

This building is packed full of fascinating information relevant to this town - photographs, tools, documents, prints and pictures. Of interest to children and adults with support from friendly staff. Good souvenir source and at the town's heart.

A nice way to spend half an hour or so. A real mix of exhibits, with plenty of detail available for those who want to learn more. Free entry and small selection of items to purchase at pocket money prices.

I recommend this Museum to people of all ages, but especially for children: they cater very well for the young ones. The Wednesday afternoon geology walk is particularly interesting for anyone looking to learn more about the history and formation of the Jurassic coast.
