The Dorset Heritage Museum prepares information and exhibits for adults, as well we feature exhibits for our youth. With the closure of our school, our community is very committed to sharing “the way it was” with our children. Our summer residents also want to treasure and respect the importance and uniqueness of their adopted community, and safeguard its future development. The Management Committee hopes to accomplish this through participation in entertaining and informative activities. The Museum gives talks and participates in local community events year round and opens upon request in off-season. The Museum also provides visitors with area information which is locted in the reception area of the museum.
