Just happened to be walking past with my son (aged 9) whilst shopping and he asked to go in because he could see a dinosaur in the garden. It was a lovely experience, beautifully presented information, very clean, lovely café, pretty garden and free to go in! It's not very big but kept us occupied for about 1.5 hours. The... More

Have visited with my 3 & 6 year old grandchildren and found this museum ideal for them. Just enough to keep their interest. During August on a Friday morning there is a craft workshop for the children and my 6 year old grandson really enjoyed this, A small charge for use of materials was very fair. On the first floor...

Fantastic opportunity to look at the history of the area and learn more about the development of the town from market town to thriving community.

A local museum located in what was originally a farm house and has been council offices. The gardens have been refurbished and provide a pleasant local park, whilest the building contains a good selection of local material relating to local potteries, strawberry growing, and a good selection of local flint finds.

I spent an hour looking around. The exhibits give a good idea of the local history and background. I particularly liked the part about the local brickwork. The bricks having been used in the Albert Hall as well as Parliament Buildings, Cape Town.

Lots of local history - for example, I was unaware of the strawberry growing in this area The section devoted to the history of the kings and queens of England and any local links was fascinating. Well worth a visit - and it's free!

Whilst the exhibits are interesting, I found, when I last reviewed the Museum in 2013 that the staff involvement was not impressive. I am pleased to report therefore that on a return visit the current staff were welcoming, explaining the various displays both permanent and temporary. It made for an excellent impression and an overall very good experience. Whilst I... More

Have lived in Fareham for 25 years and it took me a while to pop in and have a look at this place. I believe it used to be the Fareham District Council building at one point until they built the ugly concrete building they now sit. Very interesting finding out about the local area and how Fareham grew into... More

There is now a dinosaur gift shop where the tourist information once was and the dinosaur art gallery is quite a scene.
