It is a nice enough museum with good facts on the history of the town. However, it doesn't keep attention of young children. The scheduled activities are the only really good part.

Having going a lot as a child it was nice to go back again as an adult and get a real insight of what Eastleigh was like during the wars.

Free to enter - small shop - very interesting insight into the history of Eastleigh town. Reconstruction of old fashioned living accommodation. Child friendly right in the middle of Eastleigh Town centre in the High Street Well worth a visit especially in school holidays.l

This is a very small museum which appears to have research facilities, and specialises in the railway history of Eastleigh. Various free exhibitions are held at the back from time to time, and the museum is free to enter. There is a coffee bar inside which is confusingly among the exhibits, don't sit too still or visitors may think YOU... More

A nice place to visit for local knowledge, but they often put on special displays. Its a very child friendly place where i took my children when they were small and now take my grandchildren. We are all looking forward to visiting santas grotto when the lights are turned on.

I recently visited the Museum to gather information on volunteering in the area, comparing services on offer in Australia. I must commend the supervisor in attendance Miss Stock. She was very professional and had an excellent grasp of the services on offer. The volunteering staff were great. Thank you.

Looking for access to local photographs of the area, I walked into a recreation of a local home. no sign of access to local historical files. I may have missed the "research - ask here" sign, but didn't hang around very long.
