Music and Mime at Poole Museum

Looking for something new to try with your little one? Why not come along to Poole Museum’s baby and toddler group based around singing nursery rhymes and learning simple baby sign language.

The Museum, Music and Mime group meet every Friday morning between 10.30-11.30am at the museum. The relaxed and informal drop-in sessions are themed, with the children and their parents/carers singing songs related to those themes.

Each week the session begins with Museum staff showing the babies and toddlers a different museum artefact related to the theme and learning signs to describe the object including the name, size, or colour of the object. Often babies are able to learn and use signs before they are able to speak and so this helps them to communicate from an earlier age.

Following the success of these weekly meetings Poole Museum have now introduced a loyalty card scheme to benefit parents and carers. For every six sessions that a parent/carer and child attends, the parent/carer will be treated to a free hot drink at the Museum’s stunning terrace café, Café Explore.

Michael Spender, Museum Manager said: “I’m delighted we offer these stimulating and enjoyable sessions for babies and toddlers. Everyone is welcome at Poole Museum and through these weekly events even the very youngest visitors are catered for.”

The Museum, Music and Mime sessions are open to any children and their parents or carers between the ages of 0-3 years old at a cost of £2 per child, with siblings under four months going free. Booking is not essential, but spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please call 01202 262600 for more information.
