Lyme Regis Museum Closure Announcement

Following recent advice from the Prime Minister to avoid all unnecessary social contact we have taken the difficult decision to close our museum building from Wednesday 18 March.

We are disappointed to postpone welcoming visitors to the museum, but it is most important that we protect the health and well being of our visitors, volunteers and staff.

We currently expect to reopen in the early summer and until then we will continue our work behind the scenes to promote education and interest in the geology of the Jurassic Coast, Lyme’s fascinating history and unique literary connections.

We will continue to produce content for our website and social media platforms that creates new activity and connects people with our work and collections.

We will be cancelling all our walks for the rest of March, April and May and will be contacting people individually to arrange a refund.

Please sign up to our email newsletter and check our social media channels so we can keep you up to date with what’s going on.

Thank you for your ongoing support, patience and understanding at this challenging time.

We look forward to welcoming you back in due course
