On Saturday 8th April 2017 at 2pm The Mayor of Wareham, Councillor Mrs Doreen Cleaton, formally opened the museum and also a new display on a 19th century Wareham rogue, Augustus Moore, a clay pipe maker.
From 1.30 to 3.30 there were some fun craft activities for youngsters and a fancy dress competition open to anybody - some came in nineteenth century dress!  Unusual Victorian food was sampled and more familiar refreshments were available too. The public were invited to bring clay pipes for identification.
