Poole Museum Offers Free Fun for Half Term

Poole Museum is a treaure house for kids and adults alike. Packed with real history and fascinating details of life in Poole in times gone by, the building is a piece of living history too, with its refurbished old chambers and its modern facade at the quayside end of the High Street.

From Tuesday 16 February to Sunday 21 February, you can send your kids on a half-term trail to explore all three floors of the museum with their own wits as their guide. By following the clues they find out more about all the arts and crafts in the museum.

  • On Tuesday 16 February (11 am - 3 pm) the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds invites kids to join them at the museum to make beautiful twirling ladybird crafts to take away.
  • On Wednesday 17 February (11 am - 3 pm) kids can take part in Tall Tales and Takeaways and have a go at sea-themed make and take craft activities. They can listen to sea stories and take part in a seaside trail.

Both activities are ideal for children aged 4-10 years old and will take place in the family area. Materials are included.

Cllr Mohan Iyengar, Portfolio Holder for Culture and Leisure, Borough of Poole, said: “Don’t overlook Poole Museum this half term. It’s local and free and a super way to learn about the history of Poole in an enjoyable way. From centuries gone by to the recent past - I recommend it.”
