Bridport Museum


The Museum tells the story of the town's history from its origins to the present day with notable displays on artefacts from a nearby Roman hill-fort and the world famous rope and net making industries. As well as the permanent displays there is a programme of temporary exhibitions.

The Local History Collection contains a wide range of materials for people researching their local or family history.
