Considering the size of Dorchester this museum is a really good attraction.
It isn't free, i think for an adult the cost is around £6 or so, and this entitles you to visit for 12 months, personally i think it is good value even for one visit.
Both i and my daughter, now aged 6, loved this place, there are fossils and dinosaurs, great local history, and for me it is almost a holy grail of the life of Hardy, so if you in any way are a fan of Dorset's famed writer then it is a no brainer.Even if you are not a Hardy fan it is really well worth a visit, especially when compared with such dross as the other so called "museums" nearby!
