The Etches Collection Museum Of Jurassic Marine Life

A brand new immersive museum, the Etches Collection is a new and unique experience that takes you back to a time before humans existed, when parts of Dorset were under the sea. Visit the Exhibition Gallery, experience an immersive journey through life under the tropical seas of Kimmeridge 150 million years ago. Directly beneath the aquarium ceiling, in illuminated cabinets, the fossil specimens are carefully presented and interpreted to bring to life their individual stories. Visitors will leave the museum recognising that fossils are tangible evidence of living beings and there is a lot to be learnt from this former life on earth.
