A really great place to visit in Dorset!
  10 / 10
This small museum opens from good Friday till October the 31st each year and from 10am till 4:00pm. It is run totally by volunteers but owned by Wareham Town Council. Due to the museum being run by volunteers, some times the museum will open a few minutes late or, it will be closed for five minutes while the volunteer "attends to a call of nature"! The museum has a mixed display ranging from Dinosaur footprints to Dolls and from Cameras to toys. In the museum there are also a few unusual and rare items. The museums "Crown" at the moment is its T.E. Lawrence section which has a vast amount of information regarding Mr Lawrence all of which is in a mock up Bedouin tent. I am given to understand the museum even may have two photographs to do with Lawrence that no other museum has!! The other notable objects are their set of silver pennies minted in Wareham around the Saxon times. And, if you are a Time Team watcher, they have the Pole Lathe made by Bournemouth University that was used on one of the Time Team programms about Green Island in Poole harbour. All told the museum is well worth a trip. The museum also does guided tours but you need to give a weeks notice for this. They also do not charge an entrance fee but do have a donations box on the way out.
