Family fun

Poole Museum loves to welcome families, and we have a dedicated area for art and craft activities for younger visitors on the third floor of the museum.

Activities for young visitors

We run a programme of free family activities during school holidays. These are based on a different theme for each holiday period, so there are lots of different things to do throughout the year. Previous sessions have focused on:

  • Pirates

  • The Iron Age

  • Bugs and insects

  • Halloween

Activities can include ‘make and take’, art work, trails and competitions.

Look out for our ticketed events for families such as storytelling and Museum Music and Mime.
