The Dinosaur Museum is a museum presenting dinosaurs in Dorchester, the county town of Dorset, in southern England.

The Dinosaur Museum is the only museum in mainland Britain dedicated purely to dinosaurs.[1] The museum is not far from the Jurassic Coast to the south, a World Heritage Site. The museum is based in Icen Way in central Dorchester.[2] It features an outdoor model of a triceratops that was renovated in 2012.[3] At Easter, the museum features a dinosaur Easter egg hunt.[4]
