A deceptively extensive view of all aspects of social history from the last 150 years, all recreated under one roof with an excellent audio guide. Oh and they have a working Edwardian pub! Good value visit and not too busy.

Being born in Basingstoke I was very interested in seeing what was on offer. I was pleasantly surprised to find so much there. There was a café well stocked and a very convenient shuttle bus to the train station
