Deaf visitors are invited to join renowned deaf tour guide John Wilson to find out more about these museums.
Dorset Museum allows you to explore 250 million years of Dorset’s history. Discover Roman mosaics, Jurassic Coast fossils, the literature of Thomas Hardy, and the sculptures of Elisabeth Frink, with much more to see along the way.
Shire Hall Museum is an award-winning social justice museum that brings over 200 years of justice and injustice to life. Walk in the footsteps of people whose lives were forever changed in the historic court at Dorchester’s Shire Hall. Immerse yourself in the cells before ascending to the dock.
Tickets include the opportunity to explore the galleries before or after the tour at either museum or both when purchasing a joint ticket. There is also time to have lunch in one of the museum’s cafes between the tours.
Elizabeth Selby, interim director of Dorset Museum said: “We’re delighted to be offering these tours for British Sign Language users on the eve of Deaf Awareness Week. Dorset Museum already offers BSL interpretation on our gallery films, and we hope these tours will allow the deaf community to explore our museum even further.”
