Dorset Country Museum Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

A splendid Victorian gallery, with painted cast-iron pillars and arches supporting a glass roof, houses Thomas Hardy memorabilia. The author was born near Dorchester and the stories in his novels take place in the region. The furniture, paintings and documents came from Max Gate, a house he had built in 1885, as well as a reconstruction of the author's study as it was at his death.
