We popped in because it was free. It's small and there's not much to see, so don't make a special trip to visit unless you've a great interest to T E Lawrence as there's a dedicated area/display about him. However, we enjoyed a quick browse around.

Small museum with no entrance fee. Local history of Wareham encompassing the great fire, clay mining, pottery and cordite production. Section devoted to T E Lawrence as he was resident in the area for a while. Whiled away an hour.

This little gem. Great dateline history plus finding that T E Lawrence spent his last ten years in Dorset.
If you prefer the minutiae of history over kings and queens which we were forced into at school then this is the one for you. It’s free but be generous in your donation as it deserves to remain open.

We thoroughly enjoyed looking at the exhibits, and had a very interesting conversation with the gentleman at the desk, who gave us good tips on what to do and see in the town and useful leaflets. There is an area dedicated to Lawrence of Arabia who had lived nearby.

I wanted to know more about the history of Wareham and the ball clay industry and found lots of information here. Everything is well laid out and easy to view.

Whilst in Wareham we decided to make a second visit to this museum.

The staff member on duty was friendly and helpful as one of our party had a walking frame and he offered to open a door to allow flat access which was kind.

This is an interesting small museum with plenty of local history and well worth a visit if you are in town.

Interesting, intimate, friendly and free, with well presented exhibits. Some war memorabilia, T E Lawrence information as he was local to Wareham. Not to be missed if you are in the area.

I visited the museum with a friend primarily for the Augustus John exhibition. We are so lucky to have free access to such a prominent artist.
Whilst there we obviously explored the whole museum, we are local and so have been there before but it never fails to delight.
The staff were helpful and knowledgeable, the cafe was clean and provided suitable small lunches etc. and the museum itself is interesting and well laid out.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area
