It will take time, and money

The Heritage Lottery Fund has decided the vision is worthy of national priority and has confirmed a grant of £11.34m, leaving the Museum a fundraising target of £3.56m. Great progress has been made- funds of £2.3m have been raised from trusts, foundations and generous individuals, leaving another £1.3m to solicit. This is where we need your help. We need to raise £1.3m as quickly as possible to fully benefit from HLF’s grant.


The Museum always welcomes new volunteers of all ages. It’s an exciting time to get involved as everyone is planning for Tomorrow’s Museum for Dorset and contributing ideas for future displays and activities.
