Venue Hire:

We offer a unique venue like no other for your events.

Stand out, and make an impression, by hosting your next meeting or conference at our Mini Museum of Osteology, in Trinity Street, Dorchester.

About Our Facilities

We will convert the museum on the day, to be set up in a boardroom style around our Italian Designer Glass Table, to comfortably seat a maximum of 10-12 people. Whilst being able to enjoy the use of our facilities, you will be immersed in a room of fascinating animal skeletons, ranging from something as small as a chameleon, to as large as a giraffe head and neck, and yes, most are real!

Naturally our mini museum is presented in very dark colours and subtle lighting to accent the artwork of our skeletons, however, we will ensure that your lighting will be comfortable for your business needs on the day.

Whats Included

The Mini Museum is available to hire on either a half day or full day basis. We may also be able to accommodate alternative periods of time. It will be best to speak with us direct if you require this.

Our starting hire rates will include the use of the 50” wall mounted screen with VGA or HDMI cable, Wi-Fi, A1 Whiteboard and Pens, and chilled water.

(An A1 flipchart can also be supplied if the client requires).
