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.
