Dorchester Abbey Museum

The major theme of the museum is evidence of continuity and change in Dorchester, its neighbourhood from 2500BC to the present day. Emphasis is on Dorchester as a centre of human habitation through the ages, with the Abbey as a living witness of our national heritage and a centre of Christian and community life. The museum building itself dates from 14th and 15thC.
