The Museum of East Dorset – formerly the Priest’s House Museum – has thanked the supporters that made its transformation possible.
The museum has just celebrated the successful refurbishment and refit of its Grade II* listed town house opposite the Minster Church in Wimborne. The museum reopened in October 2020 just before the autumn lockdown. In an event still limited due to COVID-19 considerations, sponsors and funders, architect, building contractors, consultants, trustees, staff and other contributors were finally able to come together and raise a toast to the new museum and information centre.
The £1.8m Revival Project was made possible by a £982,200 grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, together with partnership funding from the Garfield Weston Foundation; The Talbot Village Trust; The Foyle Foundation; Canford Environmental, The Pilgrim Trust; The Valentine Trust; The Georgian Group; and Bloor Homes. Dorset County Council, local organisations, businesses and members of the local community also supported the project.
