Visit the Dorset History Centre

Anyone can visit the Dorset History Centre to carry out research, free of charge.

We do not operate a booking system, although we suggest you check our collections pages or contact us before you visit to make sure that we have the sources you need.

You will need to bring identification to sign up for a CARN card. For more details on what to bring, and what to do before your visit, see our planning your visit page.
