Resources available

Our ethos is to make the museum a special place for both informal and structured creative learning. Indoors, we offer a variety of workshops covering many aspects of the curriculum.  Outdoors we offer school fossil walks with our expert guides, a great way to get ‘hands on’ on the Jurassic Coast and really inspire pupils to get interested in science.

We also offer outreach visits and resources, including loan boxes and fossil talks with hands-on sessions.

Worksheets and other resources are available on our website.

Facilities available

The Museum is small and cannot accommodate large groups unless their time is divided between the Museum and mainly outdoor activities such as fossil trips and town walks. Additional accommodation can be provided nearby, provided notice is given. Public toilets are situated across the road from the Museum.
