Group Visits

Welcome to Poole


We welcome organised group visits to Poole Museum and invite you to discover the remarkable history of the ancient port town of Poole, its harbour and bay. It is a fascinating story that will take you through thousands of years, across oceans and into the lives of many people.

Poole Museum offers a variety of ways for groups to enjoy and enhance your visit:

  • Pre-book your self-guided visits
  • Experience museum tours led by our knowledgeable and friendly team
  • Take the unique opportunity to book special exhibition tours 
  • Receive discounted rates on group catering packages 

Group Bookings

We encourage all groups of 10 or more to book in advance to avoid any disappointment on the day of your visit, this includes self-guided groups. 

We will always try our very best to accommodate walk-ins visiting as a self-guided group, however due to limited capacity in the museum please note we cannot always guarantee entry especially during peak times.

For those looking for something extra special, we are delighted to offer our group tours and catering packages, which are available when booking ahead. These optional extras offer the perfect opportunity to enrich your visit. As such we are pleased to offer special group rates for pre-booked groups of 10 or more. 

Please see below for further details, including our tour and catering packages. For further information, enquiries, availability and booking, please contact 01202 128888 or email museumhire@bcpcouncil.gov.uk
