Sherborne Museum
Sherborne Museum Banner


Sherborne Museum is located in a prime central position halfway along Church Lane in close proximity to the Abbey and also to the Conduit at the bottom of Cheap Street, the main commercial road in town where you will find shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. We are within walking distance of the Almshouse and the two Castles - so the Museum can provide the basis for a great day out.

Disabled Access
The main door to the Museum is 33 inches wide. Wheelchair access, however, is limited to the ground floor; unfortunately we are unable to provide a stair lift due to our status as a listed building. There is a touch-screen available on the ground floor for digital access to our photographic archives and images of examples from our collections. A Sensory Trail is being developed to enhance the visits of all those who might benefit from tactile, sensorimotor and proprioceptive experience. Support dogs of all kinds are welcomed. Out of hours visits and personal tours can be arranged by appointment to accommodate all needs. There is a WC for the disabled.
