The Etches Collection

‘Museum of Jurassic Marine Life’

A unique, modern museum of amazing fossils – the marine life of Jurassic Dorset. Lean about Life and Death in the Kimmeridgian Seas 157 million years ago during the age of the Dinosaur. Visit us in the village of Kimmeridge, many of the incredible specimens were found within 2 miles of our location on the stunning Jurassic Coast, all found by just one man , Dr Steve Etches MBE.

Watch prehistoric sea monsters swimming above the museum gallery whilst the exceptionally preserved and prepared fossils, all new to science and of great palaeontological importance provide a unique and fascinating insight into how these ancient creatures lived, bred and died.
