Things That Go Bump At The Museum

Whatever the weather, there’s a lot to do at Poole Museum this half term, especially if it’s pouring with rain!

Why not have a go at the spooky spider trail around the Museum. Follow the trail to reveal the letters to make a spooky word. The trail runs from Saturday 26 October until Sunday 3 November during normal Museum opening hours (10 am until 5pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm until 4pm on Sundays).

The resident Scaplen’s Court witch will also be in session between 11am-3pm on Wednesday 30 October and Thursday 31 October. She will be brewing up a witch’s potion and telling scary tales. Ghoulish fun for the whole family.

Cllr Judy Butt, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Public Engagement, Borough of Poole, said: "Poole Museum always impresses with its school holiday events programme and this half term is no exception. There's some spooktacular events and I would urge any parents and carers at a loose end to head down and check out the ghoulish offerings."

If you are looking for something a bit less scary, why not join us for Treehouse Theatre’s performance of 'The Jurassic’s Got Talent'. This interactive story includes lots of opportunities for dressing up, music making and singing. The performance is on Friday 1 November and suitable for children between the ages of three and eight years old. Advance booking only. Tickets cost £5 per child and are available from Poole Museum. Contact the Museum on tel: 01202 262600 or email: museums@poole.gov.uk to book your ticket.
