About the Model Town

We are open every day, 10am - 5pm until October 30th

Wimborne Model Town is a 1/10th scale of the centre of Wimborne as it was in the 1950s which opened in the 1952.  The charity attraction, mainly staffed by volunteers, sits on nearly a one acre site with mature gardens and complementary facilities.  With increasing details added over the years, you can get really close up and even touch the buildings.  Peer into the Butchers, the Ironmongers, the Bakery and the Fishmongers, not forgetting the stunning interior of the Minster Church.
