Whether for business or for pleasure, Dorset County Museum is a unique and unforgettable venue at which to hold an event.

Conferences, lectures, wedding receptions, corporate meetings, sales events and client receptions have all been hosted in the gothic splendour of the Museum’s Victorian Gallery. Surrounded by an eclectic array of historic objects, from Roman sarcophagi,mosaics and frescoes to fine Georgian oil paintings and furniture, your guests can peruse their surroundings in an atmosphere of culture and refinement.

With its arches of fine cast ironwork inspired by the Great Exhibition of 1851 and International Exhibition of 1862, and the beautiful rose window crowning the gallery's north transept, the Victorian Gallery makes a unique venue for a very special evening.
