Exterior of Wareham Town Museum

Wareham Town Museum tells the story of the Wareham area of Dorset in southern England from prehistoric times to the present day. It has a special section on Lawrence of Arabia, who lived close by at Clouds Hill. The museum is regularly updated with new exhibits.

The museum has produced an hour-long DVD entitled T. E. Lawrence — His Final Years in Dorset which includes a reconstruction of Lawrence's fatal motorcycle accident while riding his beloved Brough Superior near his home, Clouds Hill, in May 1935.

The museum, which is in the centre of Wareham, next to the town hall, is supported by the Wareham Town Council and is run by volunteers.
