#LoveBridportMuseum

by bridportmuseum in Bridport

Help us raise £20,000 to redevelop this much loved local museum!

by bridportmuseum in Bridport

We did it
On 13th August 2016 we successfully raised £7,895 with 101 supporters in 73 days

We will be re-designing Bridport Museum, to make it a fun and engaging community hub.

Our new displays will be modern and interactive, showing off our incredible collections in new and engaging ways.

The museum will be much more accessible to everyone, as it will include lots more modern facilities, including a lift to the first floor.

It will be a space that families can enjoy, all through the year, free of charge.

The project is the culmination of more than three years’ research and development, and will also include urgent repair and restoration to our Grade II* Listed Building. 

You can help us make your Museum by pledging for one of our rewards.

This exciting project will cost £1.3 million in total, but we need to raise a crucial £20,000 to get the project off the ground… and that’s where you come in.

We are a friendly Dorset Museum with nationally important collections. 

Our Museum is right in the heart of Bridport, a historic rope and net making town.

The town has a rich history of over 800 years to share, reflected in our exciting collections.

We are also very proud to be part of the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast. And have an internationally important collection of fossils.

We couldn’t operate without our fabulous team of volunteers – aged from 16 to 82 – who are eager to share our rich history.  We are extremely grateful to the following organisations who have taken us 92% of the way to our total fundraising target for this important renovation project.

We have to give a massive thank you to all of the amazing local business and people that have donated rewards, we could not run this campaign without your continued support.
