... a thousand years, a million stories
We house Dorset's local archives - from council records to personal collections.
We are open
We are open to the public on a limited basis, with access to original documents and microfilm. There is no access to public computers. You will need to make an appointment before visiting us, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have carefully risk assessed the public spaces and the procedures necessary to keep both staff and visitors safe.
Dorset History Centre is open 9am to 5pm Tuesday to Friday and 9am to 4:30pm on the first and third Saturday of each month.
