Let's Build the Barracks

When? 27 May 2023 to 04 Jun 2023
Where? Keep Military Museum - Dorchester

  • Let's Build the Barracks

Come along to The Keep Military Museum this half term and help our Victorian soldiers build the brand new barracks! Travel back to 1879 and help Captain Jobberns build a brand new home for the Dorsetshire Regiment.

This new children’s trail will guide you around our Grade II listed building, once the Depot of Dorchester’s military barracks, and get you building a brand new home for the Dorsets.

Learn about the Victorian Military, and the Victorian architecture across Dorchester. Don’t miss a chance to see the town from above from our roof top terrace, giving you the only view across the Victorian town from above!

Our Let’s Build the Barracks trail is included in the price of admission, and we look forward to seeing you!
