We went down to Poole Harbour as an attempt to defy the rain and go across to visit Brownsea Island. While debating whether this cloud of rain will disappear we realised our attire was not likely to be appropriate and would not remain dry for the next half hour. We will certainly return on a sunny day, meanwhile we decided to wonder around until we came across Poole Museum. The design of the entrance and free entry did attract us even more and stepped in to discover an great array of history of the region and particularly Poole. It also shows an energetic community and its link to the Olympics. Overall, good layout and displays, with films, photographs, objects and furniture from different eras. Worth the detour and will probably return!
