Portland Museum

The Portland Museum is a charity dedicated to working with the local community to protect and promote the unique heritage of the Isle of Portland and was founded in 1929 by the scientist and women’s rights campaigner, Dr Marie Stopes.

Sitting squarely in the middle of the Jurassic Coast, the museum houses a diverse and fascinating collection based on the themes of maritime history, quarrying and the Portland stone industry, dinosaurs and fossils, archaeology, folklore and local customs.
