For its size a lot has been packed into this museum which deals with nearly all aspects of Fareham and surrounding area including schools, police and fire brigade. There is also a small natural history display. It is well laid out and doesn't dwell too long on each subject which keeps it interesting. There is also a nice cafe and... More

Gives you an insight to life back in the days when Fareham was a market town, pleasant that you can sit and take refreshments after your visit.

Spent about 20 minutes inside just to have a quick look around. It's free which is excellent because you wouldn't really need more than 30 minutes to see everything.

Excellent little but FREE museum near the centre of Fareham which is well worth a look. Exhibitions about the 'Workhouses' and Schools of past times. Great little park to sit in behind the Museum on a nice day. Coffee available.

A local history delight for no money. We live in the town and pop in at least once a month to see whats new or the latest local display. Don't forget to look at the building inside as well as the "artifacts", it's typically old Fareham inside. Support this local museum as it it's not, it will be lost.

It is a delightful place to stop and sit. The small boy is still there, which delights many visitiors. Tea shop is well stocked and they really do get good exhibitions there
