News Clipping: New museum role for Victorian Hall
Dorset County Museum's Victorian Hall
Dorset County Museum's Victorian Hall will have a new role when a blockbuster exhibition moves out later this month. The venue is currently hosting the touring British Museum
exhibition Pharaoh: King of Egypt, which has smashed visitor numbers at
the Dorchester museum since it opened in October. The exhibition ends on 22nd January but the links will continue
with the British Museum's involvement in creating a new display on the
theme of A Museum within a Museum in the hall.
