The Wareham Town Museum will be open for the first time this year on:
Saturday 26th June from 10am to 4pm.
Due to the restrictions we can only allow 6 people or two families to be in the Museum at one time, so there may be a wait when you call in. On arrival please sanitise your hands, and scan the QR code. If you cannot do so, please add your names to the list at the front desk.
Masks (or exemption lanyard) must be worn at all times when in the Museum.
Thank you for your understanding, and we hope that these restrictions will lift before the end of July.
