The Etches Collection – Museum of Jurassic Marine Life at Kimmeridge opened 2 years ago in October 2016. The museum houses the remarkable collection of one man’s passion, bringing to life the stories from deep time through a unique and amazing collection of marine fossils many of which are unique to science. Steve Etches’ collection of over 2,500 specimens includes crocodiles, sharks, flying reptiles, corals, shells, insects, crustaceans, ichthyosaurs, belemnites and dinosaurs. Whilst exploring these amazing exhibits, CGI projections on the ceiling will give visitors the impression of being underwater some 150 million years ago. Definitely worth a visit!!
