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.
