Beaminster Museum – Heritage Open Day

Details

Beaminster Museum is growing!

Beaminster Museum is expanding. Built as a Chapel, and converted in 1990, it demonstrates how a listed building can be modified to meet present-day needs. Heritage agriculture and horticulture displays, and much more.

Visitors will be able to see into 2 new rooms being built in 2021. See our cobwebby, rodent-infested barn with farm implements of bygone days, along with exhibits and artefacts from the worlds of sheep, milk and arable. Our “Growing for Gold” exhibit digs into the history of gardens and allotments in our area, including a Chelsea gold medal. Other local displays include geology, prehistory, flax and sailcloth, a glimpse into the living room of a local sailcloth weaver from the 19th century. Also, a self-guided tour of images of our parishes – megaliths, big houses, famous people and ordinary people, quirky events and important events.
