  • This small museum has a number of treasures, artifacts and wordy exhibits, and takes about an hour to look round. We found the children's quiz quite disjointed and confusing over where to find the ans...  more »

  • I am currently doing a University project on Ancient Egypt and the death of Tutankhamun so this was absolutely perfect for my project! I found it very interesting and informative and would definitely recommend it to visitors coming to Dorchester. The only thing I have to say negatively about it is that you can't take photographs of any of the museum exhibits but overall was a good experience!
  • Nice little place with lots of information to ready, videos and fascinating displays. Great if you like ancient Egypt. It was a small place and we spent around 90mins here maybe a little longer.
  • Is it worth it? Depends what you have seen before, my opinion is no. Plenty of information and nice displays, you are not going to spend so much time in there, a mummie display is upstairs at extra cost, didn't pay for that as main exhibition cost enough. Staff was helpful.
  • Rip off, don't do it. If you want to learn more about Tutankhamun, look on the Internet. Basically one room filled with writing, Very few things to actually look at. And if you want to see mummy's in room 2, that costs more money. Your better off going to the museum down the road, SO much better and a fraction of the price.
  • Surprised at the standard of this exhibition given some of the slightly more basic, limited 'museums' in Dorchester. Very good content, well laid out, informative with some really excellent standard of exhibits.
