The Keep is the Military Museum of Devon and Dorset. Housed in an extraordinary castle-like building, the collection spans 300 years of history over 4 floors. You can walk through a World War One trench, try on uniforms and discover the amazing stories behind the Museum objects, at the end of your visit don’t forget to go onto the roof for amazing views of Dorchester!
We are a family friendly Museum and we attract all ages, we are fully accessible with a lift to every floor (apart from the roof), we encourage people to take photographs and share their visit with us. Due to the nature of our collection only Assistance Dogs are allowed in the building.
