Sherborne Museum, housed in what used to be the Gatehouse and Almonry associated with the Benedictine monastery, is a community, volunteer-run museum dedicated to preserving the local heritage of the town and surrounding villages.


Exhibitions include the geological, social, historical, and industrial development of the locality from Prehistory, through Roman, medieval, seventeenth century to the present day. Core exhibits include a unique medieval wall-painting, a model of the Norman Castle, a digital version of the Sherborne Missal illuminated manuscript, silk and gloving displays, an Edwardian dolls' house and 200 botanical watercolours of local flora. We also have changing displays reflecting local anniversaries and current events. Our photographs, postcards and paintings form one of the largest private collections of images of a small town anywhere in the country. We encourage school visits and organise family-friendly events. There is a virtual tour of the upper galleries for those who cannot make the stairs and a Sensory Trail is being developed. A large reserve collection is available by appointment for the serious student.
