Get Involved

There are plenty of ways to get involved and support the museums in your area. Here’s just a few:

Donating Objects

The vast majority of collections you see in museums are donated by members of the public. If you have objects or photographs that you think a museum may be interested in, why not enquire?


Are you fascinated by Dorset’s past? Do you want to give something back to your community? If so…volunteer! Get involved with your local museum. You will be surprised how rewarding it can be.

Donating Money and Services

Museums rely heavily on the generosity of the public and their volunteers to carry out their work successfully. Donations of time, money and services all help to preserve and promote the county’s heritage.

Help Promote Us

We want as many people as possible to find out about Dorset Museums. If you can help with the publicity and promotion of this website or individual museums, please get in touch!
