Set in a Victorian quayside warehouse in the Old Town, the galleries of Poole Museum tell the story of the historic maritime town and its harbour, from prehistory to the 21st century.

It’s a fascinating story that will take you through thousands of years, across oceans and into the lives of many people - from a 295BC log boat discovered in the harbour to recognition of the town’s importance in the 1248 Longspee Charter and the trading history of 17th and 18th century merchants.

The museum is also home to over 150 pieces of world-famous Poole Pottery.
