Museum

Mary Anning’s Former Home is Fossil Heaven

Lyme Regis Museum stands in the heart of the town, just where the beautiful coastlines of Dorset and Devon meet on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

The museum is packed with interesting and quirky displays.  Our collections are unusually rich for a small museum and we have a lot of good stories to tell. Lyme’s lively local history is well represented by maritime and domestic objects, and illustrated by paintings, prints and photographs.

The area is noted for its fossils, displayed in our geological galleries, and the town’s literary connections, from Jane Austen to John Fowles, are illustrated in the Writers Gallery.
