Enquiries & Talks

The museum can help answer your questions about East Dorset's heritage and our curators can give illustrated talks on a variety of topics.

Local history research

The museum's library has a large collection of information relating to life in Wimborne Minster and East Dorset. We have census details, trade directories, parish magazines, local ephemera, photographs and much more. There is also a large selection of local history and reference books.

Please note we are unable to accept local history enquiries or research appointments until further notice, due to preparations for the redevelopment of the museum and information centre in 2019. A reduced local history enquiries service will resume in the spring and be based in Wimborne library.
