Heritage Open Day: Explore our Museum based in one of Bridport's oldest buildings!
Discover our unique rope and netting collection with working machinery, beautiful Roman jewellery and amazing fossils from the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. Founded in 1932, Bridport Museum is housed in a building known as 'The Castle'. The facade of the building goes back to Tudor times. You can still see some original features such as a beautiful angel corbel upstairs.
Our collections and displays celebrate the town's unique heritage: 180 million years of rocks and fossils, 2000 years of people and 800 years of rope and net making.
At some times during the week, there will be live ropemaking demonstrations, and there is a children's trail available at all times.
Thu 16 Sep:10:00 - 16:00. Fri 17 Sep:10:00 - 16:00. Sat 18 Sep:10:00 - 16:00. Free Entry.
