Lyme Regis Museum


The museum is bigger and better than ever, and there is even more for you to discover including a brand new interactive fossil gallery, a new Fine Foundation Learning Centre for schools and families, improved visitor facilities including a lift, a new gift shop and magnificent sea views out over Lyme Bay.

Lyme Regis Museum houses some fantastic fossils and is a great place to learn about the long history of fossil collecting in the area and the deep links between Lyme Regis and the history of science going back two hundred years. Visit the museum to find out about Mary Anning, the greatest fossil hunter that ever lived and William Buckland, known as ‘the father of geology’.

The museum also runs excellent and entertaining guided fossil walks with local geologists. Times vary depending on the tides. Click here for the current fossil walks timetable.
