Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum and Memorial Cottages in Dorset

This page is about Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum and Memorial Cottages in Dorchester, Dorset

The Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum tells the story of the men whose actions lead to the foundation of modern day trade unionism. It sets out the Martyrs' story in four sections: before the arrest, the oath and betrayl, transportation and home coming. It tells of their arrest trial and punishment.

THe museum has been redesigned into a modern educational exhibition with interactive touch screen displays telling the story in text and images.

The Trades Unions and organizations have sponsored a new book and CD Rom. The Museum evolved out of the library which formed part of the Tolpuddle Martyrs memorial cottages; built in 1934 to mark the centenary of the Martyrs' conviction. A miscellaneous collection of artefacts, memorabilia and documents relating to the history of the Martyrs evolved and a new museum opened in 2000 which has become a place of pilgrimage for visitors.

The museum is sponsered by many of the Trades Unions.
