Booking a Visit

We are a very popular service, so we recommend you book workshops at least a term in advance to ensure you get the slot you want.

You can email us or call us (01202 262628) to discuss your requirements. Alternatively, you can fill in one of our booking enquiry forms.

You can visit the Museum itself at anytime during Museum opening hours for free. We ask that you let us know when you are coming so that we can ensure that all visiting groups have the best possible access.


We offer three levels of charging:

1. Pay as you go. 

2. Silver subscription

3. Gold subscription

Pay as you go prices are a one off price, but if you find you use our services a bit more often then you might want to consider a subscription. Silver subscribers pay £2 per pupil as an annual subscription and then can benefit from the reduced prices (below). Gold subscribers pay £5 per pupil as an annual subscription and then can book many services and activities for free or at a substantially reduced rate.

All maintained Poole Schools are charged as Gold subscribers.
