Poole Museum covers everything Maritime!

Entrance to Poole Museum is free and is, reportedly, the 5th most visited free attraction in the South West!

Set in a Victorian quayside warehouse with a modern atrium, Poole Museum’s galleries tell the story of the historic maritime town of Poole and Poole Harbour from prehistory to the 21st century. It is actually the Museum formerly known as the Waterfront Museum.

They do talks and tours and have lots of interactive elements to play with!

The centre piece of the museum is the 2,000-year-old Poole Logboat, an Iron Age vessel which was found in 1964 during dredging work in Poole Harbour. The museum also has a floor devoted to the history of Poole Pottery and some products are on display.

Check out their website – HERE!

Attached to the main Poole Museum building, in the Grade I listed medieval town cellars, is the Local History Centre, containing an extensive library of material involving Poole’s heritage supported by microfilmed and digitised material.
