Directions to Wareham Town Museum by public transport
Due to Covid restrictions it will not possible for the Wareham Town Museum to open up to the public until 24th July 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, visitors will be limited to six - but 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.
