Opening Hours:

We have moved from our old home at the Tithe Barn to a new home.  Relocation of the Museum to the Heritage Centre during the winter of 2005/6 proved very successful and has received many favourable comments from the wider museum community in Dorset and beyond.

Construction and display work was undertaken entirely by museum volunteers

The transfer was made possible by Heritage Lottery Funding, secured by Purbeck District Council and the County Museums Advisor.

Welcome to our new interactive site

The Trustees of the Museum are pleased to announce that Swanage Museum has gained Accredited status  from the M.L.A.

This prime new location on the seafront has
generated vastly increased visitor numbers.
