Obsolutely brilliant but go down to bottom of Market car park first and cross over to rthe Quay, take a picture with mobile from the Quay looking at the railway arches then go into museum and look at model and pictures and see just how fareham has changed.

Nice museum and a lovely little cafe also. Dropped in as a sentimental journey for my wife as she was born in fareham. Enjoyed the museum and the cafe was very welcoming.

A lovely building seemingly often walked past. Once inside a museum of local history, a small and friendly gift shop and a quaint Cafe, not heaving like others on the High Street. An ideal visit for a few minutes quiet-step back in time and also learn about the terrible conditions and treatment in the local workhouse. Worth a visit.

A beautiful building crammed full of fascinating historical data about Fareham. If you ever wondered who Henry Cort was, or why the town was once famous for chimney pots, the answers lie therein. There are also sad tales being told there. No matter how long you may have lived in Fareham, you won't truly know the town until you have... More

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...

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.
