Welcome to Sherborne Museum!

We are centrally located in the heart of this beautiful Dorset town and occupy what was formerly the Almonry belonging to the Abbey, now a grade II listed building.   A registered charity (no.306251), the Museum has independent status and was the first volunteer-run museum in Dorset to receive full Accreditation.
