For Kids

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

  • Forthcoming programme

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 ticketted events for families such as storytelling and Museum Music and Mime.

Details of the forthcoming programme can be found in our events guide. If you would like to join our mailing list to receive notification about our events please email us at museums@poole.gov.uk
