Poole Museum Volunteers

Who are Poole Museum Volunteers?

We are a dedicated team providing volunteering opportunities at Poole Museum, Scaplen's Court as well as supporting cultural activities in the BCP area.

Fantastic news! Poole Museum has been successful in it’s ‘Our Museum: Rediscovering Poole’s Maritime Heritage’ bid, and has been awarded a £2.24 million grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Poole Museum will be transformed into an outstanding cultural centre and community hub, reopening in late 2024.

Whilst the museum is closed to the public, we are taking the Museum on the Move with events and activities taking place over the next 18 months.  If you would like to get involved, then please sign up as a volunteer to find out more.
