The RNLI is well known for what it achieves today from saving lives of shipping disasters through Life guards on holiday beaches.
This delve into their history in Poole and the proximity of their University, boat building and accommodation was fascinating and shows how technical progress has helped the service move forward. Well done all RNLI volunteers and employees.

A small museum with an old lifeboat and bits of equipment. Not much to hold a young family's attention, but nice RNLI souvenir shop

A great place to visit, and read and see, what the lifeboat crews did. We would highly recommend a visit.
