Here are some good pictures of the Lyme Regis Museum in Dorset, England that contains Mary Anning memorabilia. I did not realize that the museum is on the site of her house. https://www.mindat.org/article.php/4337/The+Lyme+Regis+museum+

Soooo under the pretence of a holiday in the South West of England I took Dr B and little Violet to Lyme Regis and we, er, stumbled across Lyme Regis Museum which unbeknown to me had some paleontological specimens inside something to do with a certain Mary Anning I believe. Fortunately the museum has other things that Dr B was interested in (actually we all were), as a teacher of creative writing and a novelist, so my bacon was saved when it became apparent that John Fowles was curator there for two years and Jane Austin visited Lyme regularly.
