The Kimmeridge Trust

The Kimmeridge Trust

South West

Museum and Centre of Excellence for Learning and Discovery situated in Kimmeridge on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast housing the finest single collection of Late Jurassic age fossils in Britain.

The Etches Collection Museum of Jurassic Marine Life is a unique collection of marine fossils from ‘Deep Time’, 150 million years ago, and is of vital scientific value as it contains many new species from the Late Jurassic period. It is a gift to the nation by Dr Steve Etches MBE, a self-taught palaeontologist whose discovery, skilled preparation and research has changed our understanding of life in the Kimmeridgian period. The Kimmeridge Trust manages the museum which through its visitor income, funding and donations, is able to conserve and develop this growing collection as an international treasure. Visitors enter a virtual aquarium of 150 million years ago to vividly experience the story of these incredible marine creatures - how they bred, lived and died - some of which evolved to survive to this day.
