The Swanage Museum & Heritage Centre (in Swanage, Dorset, UK) hosts a small exhibition about early radar in the UK.  This is just a few miles from the sites at Worth Matravers where significant radar development took place from 1940 - 1942.  
The theme of the exhibition changes each year - have a look at the programme.  The original exhibition was opened by Sir Bernard Lovell in July 2006 - see the opening ceremony.
The exhibition includes:
- wall panel with photographs,
- portfolio folder of display panels,
- an interactive computer display,
- booklets published by the Purbeck Radar Museum Trust available for purchase (see publications).
The exhibition was created by Sq Ldr Mike Dean MBE from his extensive collection of photographs and other material.  It is based on the previous larger exhibition he installed at the Worth Café & Craft Centre in June 2006.
