* Due to Covid restrictions it will not possible for the Wareham Town Museum to open up fully to the public until at least 21st June 2021, but even then, due to the size of the Museum and not being able to form a one way round the Museum with social distancing, it will be difficult to open up fully. To this end, a family or classroom bubble will be welcome to book a time in order to have a 'private viewing' of all our exhibits and to meet a volunteer to answer any questions.
