This is a free to enter local museum right in the town centre. Lots of interesting displays across several floors and a small shop. Also has a very good cafe serving drinks, snacks and lunches. Recently restored gardens are pretty but not very big.

What a lovely old building in amongst some rather less lovely more modern town centre developments. We appreciated this quiet and thoughtful place. The cafe was just the right place for a toasted sandwich, looking out onto the garden.

Visited on a quiet day and was very impressed with the displays and knowledge of the staff in the museum. Everywhere is really clean and well cared for. Lovely friendly cafe with freshly prepared food. Would recommend if you need a light when in Fareham.

What a find on the high street in Fareham, this recently updated museum, has a very welcoming café offering light snacks and drinks. The exhibits are fascinating and give a great insight in to the history of the town and area. Definitely worth a visit.

We were in the area and thought we would pop in. It was very good and gave us an aspect of local history. There were lots of displays which was nice. It's about 40 minutes to look around, but it's very interesting.
