Parking is available at the Dorset Council’s Purbeck Park ‘Pay & Display’ car park.

Toilets and baby changing facilities are located in the car park.

Refreshments are available at the kiosk by the Children’s Play area.

We’re committed to making our Museum as accessible as we can for everyone. At present, access is not possible to some parts of the site for wheelchair users or pushchairs and buggies. We’ll always try to find a solution to ensure that this doesn’t impact on your enjoyment.

Dogs on a lead are welcome.

We’re next to the fabulous Swanage Railway, so why not make a day of it and enjoy a trip on a steam hauled train.
