Waterfront Museum

The Waterfront Museum or Poole Museum is almost on Poole Quay giving visitors fantastic views of  Poole Harbour and the Old Town.

Built to display the history and culture of Poole’s maritime history from its pirates to modern day sailors. Displays in the Museum include an historic street scene featuring a local public house, chemist and general store, as well as on old fire engine.

Other exhibits in the Museum include the famous Poole Log Boat, numerous pictures and maps of the area, items recovered from wrecks – such as the Studland Bay wreck – interactive exhibits where the children at heart can have a go at brass rubbing, mosaic making or numerous other crafts.

The Poole Museum also houses the Local History Centre, based in the historic Town Cellars, where you can learn more about the history of Poole and it’s people, where you can also carry out private research by prior appointment.

Scaplen’s Court Museum is adjacent to The Poole Museum and is used as an educational centre for children throughout the year, but is open to the public during the summer month of August. Scaplen’s Court Garden is a unique walled garden to the rear of the building which has been restored by a team of volunteers.
