Interesting museum that chronicles the life of a typical railway engineer and his family during the 1930s.

Hidden away on the Street is a lovely museum packed with lots of local interest items and history. Would recommend a visit to anyone.

We love this museum, good activities for children and is good day out. Learnt lots about the area but text is sometimes small to read. We would come again as good for family days out.

What a lovely little place this is! Presumably run by volunteers, who were to say the least very knowledgeable.
It’s only a small museum, however it’s got bags of local history.
You can also stay for a coffee in their nice cafe!

A lovely small museum in the centre of Eastleigh that tells the story of the town and the surrounding area, good cafe and a little shop makes it worth a visit

We stopped off at this small museum on our way to Bournemouth, hoping to spend up to an hour there. Alas, we had seen it all in about 10 mins. There was a resource center with lots of ring binders for train spotters, but there was not that much to look at in the rest of the museum. We liked the unusual art exhibition in the back room.

We spotted this online and thought it would be a good place to spend an hour or two on our way elsewhere. We were not disappointed!
The museum is well organized and informative. The main section looks at the life and the home of Mr and Mrs Brown, a train driver and his wife, in 1938. There is also a small section devoted to the Transit van, sadly no longer made in the UK.
Two very charming ladies and a gentleman in a wheelchair, all volunteer staff, made us welcome and provided delicious coffee and biscuits.

I popped in with an outreach inquiry and the lady with the blond hair was most helpful.i was served a delicious cup of coffee from which I believe are volunteers. Whilst the lady with blond hair was helping me. I looked around the museum and I found it really really interesting. I noticed for my little ones there where lots of activities during the summer . My children also enjoy the colouring corner with clean toys and books. It is great that a museum can also deal with outreach work. Thank you again. 10/10👍🥇🏛✔️

This is a lovley museum in the heart of Eastleigh. The museum itself focuses mainly on the railway and has allsorts of fascinating information. There's also a large cafe, which is perfect for popping in while out shopping. It also has a supply of toys and runs regularly activities for kids.

Most importantly, though, is how friendly the museum feels. The staff are always helpful and make me feel very welcome :)

The volunteer staff there are the most lovely people. All of the queries people came in with were sorted out quickly and efficiently. The coffee was of exquisite taste and the exhibition was detailed and accurate of the time period it was portraying.

Amazing place to come and visit for a quick pit stop while shopping!
