The Mary Anning Experts
At Lyme Regis Museum we pride ourselves on being the experts when it comes to Mary Anning. You can read more about her story here.
Did you know that the museum is built on the site of her former home and fossil shop?
So, when you visit the museum, you will be standing where Mary Anning herself stood, looking out at the same stunning view of Lyme Bay and the cliffs. Much of the seafront also remains as it would have been in her day.
You can even follow in Mary Anning’s footsteps and go fossil hunting on the beach! We think the best way to find out more about Mary Anning and the fossils you can find along the Jurassic Coast is to join us on a fossil walk.
When you visit the museum, why not visit Mary Anning’s grave too? It’s in nearby St Michael’s Parish Church. You can also see the beautiful stained-glass window that commemorates her life. It was paid for by members of the Geological Society in 1850.
