Featured in Culture in Dorset 2023

Published by Editor on

Dorset is a county famous for its culture. Creativity thrives here, and the enormous variety and volume of cultural events is astounding.

We are delighted to have been featured in the Arts Development Company’s Culture in Dorset celebrations and report, see why we were chosen below:

The Arts Development Council said in their report:

“Our cultural lives are, like so much, formed by our earliest experiences. And children are notoriously harsh critics. So this July, West Bay Discovery Centre chose to join the British Museum, Natural History Museum and Los Angeles’s Museum of Contemporary Art in adopting the Kids in Museums manifesto.

Already known for their interactive displays, the Centre is now laser-focused on being even more welcoming and comfortable for families. From marine conservation to railway history, via Jurassic Coast fossils, their programme pulls together artefacts, talks and performances to illuminate each subject, always with children and their families at the forefront of their thinking.”
