Museum Connection

See the old shops...

Visit Poole Museum to see how our shops used to look...

The museum has a row of recreated shop displays based on local streets circa late 1800s. 

You'll also see items recovered from Hawkes Shoe Shop that dominated the High Street for almost two centuries. The Poole Trail spot tells you more about this store, which was once Poole's most modern shop.
