The Museum was founded in 1976 by a group of enthusiastic artists and historians. We moved from our first location at the old Tithe Barn in the winter of 2005/06 to our new prime location on the sea front.

Our Local Studies Centre offers a wide range of original and facsimile material for study and research. This is an important part of our work, and we have a number of volunteers with detailed local knowledge who can help to answer specific Local & Family History Enquiries.

The Local Studies Centre is based at our second location at Marine Villas on Swanage Pier. Access is strictly by appointment only. Please contact the Hon. Curator by email. View our Web Site for further details

We do not make a set charge for supplying copy material or carrying out research, but we do welcome donations to the Museum. All monies received go directly towards developing the work of the Museum, and in particular providing additional resources for the Local Studies Centre.

The Museum receives NO regular funding and is run entirely by volunteers.
