Corfe Museum in Purbeck

Details

Starting with the iguanadon, (dinosaur), through stone age man and the riches underfoot. The Museum has images and artefacts taken from Corfe’s past with the clay, stone and Purbeck Marble industries and snapshots of why and how the village became what it is today.

The Museum is housed on the ground floor of the smallest Town Hall in England and so it is quite small too, but well worth a visit. It is open every day and entry is free

UPDATED 2023!

Over the past year, a volunteer team has been working hard to updated Dorset’s smallest museum at Corfe. The new displays include:

– Updated dinosaur trackway

– a large-scale visualisation of the Iguanodon, based on the trackway’s footprints

– new graphics which feature high quality photographic and artistic images

– interactive elements, including an audio-quiz featuring intriguing Dorset dialect phrases

– new artefacts, from a Civil War cannon ball to an original 1500s stained glass window from Corfe Castle.
