Other Educational Visits

The Museum tells the story of the small town of Lyme Regis in its landscape. The collections comprise objects, paintings and photographs illustrating the geology of the area and the history of the town from medieval times to the present day. There is also a small section on the pre-medieval archaeology of the area.

Mary Anning's graveEducational visits for the disabled

Our Education Officer is very happy to discuss the personal or group educational needs for disabled visitors. If you are blind or wheel-chair user then a fossil walk is not possible but alternatives, such as fossil handling sessions, are.

The pictures show a recent visit organised for a blind man. He was able to feel the features of the fossils he was handling as they were described to him. He was also able to experience some of Mary Anning’s story on a visit to the church and graveyard (right).

Please note that there is no lift in the museum. All activities for visitors with access problems are carried out on the ground floor where their is also a slide show of the exhibits on the upper floors.
