Entry is free to everyone and from 11am to 3pm, visitors will be able to learn about and handle real objects from Museum’s extensive collection. Creating memorable and inspiring learning experiences as well as taking part in fun and fascinating interactive workshops and other activities. There will be also a chance to re-visit the Stalbridge History Society exhibition “Stalbridge for Sale 1918” and an opportunity to meet The Stalbridge Archive Group and catch up on how the “Dig” is going at Stalbridge Park.
Emma Talbot, Head of Learning at Dorset County Museum said, “The team at Dorset County Museum are really excited to take our inflatable museum to Stalbridge! This tour is a great opportunity to bring the experience of visiting the Museum to Dorset’s towns and villages offering a free, fun drop-in to learn about the Museums current redevelopment. Take part in engaging activities and handle real objects from our collection including Archaeology, Natural History, Social History and Fossils. There will be children trails, and our popular ‘Make and Create’ workshops inspired by the Museum’s collections.
The Inflatable museum is an initiative of the Dorset County Museum and was created, with the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Manchester Museum as an immersive learning environment designed to bring the wonder and curiosity of Dorset County Museum and its fascinating collections to communities across Dorset.
