About
In Gosport town centre you’ll find The Discovery Centre, which is open till 7pm on weekday evenings. There is a surprising range of things to see at the Centre, including art exhibitions, events, and special activities for children and families. The Discovery Centre museum tells the history of Gosport and is well worth a visit, whilst those interested in fossils will enjoy the Geology Gallery. Why not also visit the family friendly exhibition on the mezzanine floor of Gosport Discovery Centre. Located just off the Town Centre High Street, exhibitions use pictures, objects and interactives to tell the stories of Gosport’s people.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is a pleasure to visit this great Library & Discovery Centre, complete with a lovely cafe.
Staff are always helpful and knowledgeable. A good selection of books, arranged around seating area and cafe. Ideal meeting place with friends. The cafe is bright and cheerful, the food is always well presented by friendly and polite staff and very reasonably priced. It is well used by the community and a great asset to Gosport.

The lovely staff here were kind enough to open up the library especially for my Cub Pack after hours so they could explore the library's facilities and the local knowledge museum on site. The two staff were brilliant and everything on offer was excellent

So many activities apart from a library! Love the way the books are entwined throughout the coffee shop - very busy and everyone really friendly and helpful.

Not many towns or cities have such a well equipped modern venue. Two floors of well kept books audio and video equipment. As far as Gosport is concerned it is the jewel in the crown! The cafe has a varied menu and a comfortable seating and eating area. All in all a great place to visit .

Whilst the library looks nice and clean I did feel it was slightly more crowded and awkward with a pram to get round. Disappointed that I could not get the leaflets I wanted informing me of things going on around the area.

Only use this place to visit the cafe.
They are lovely friendly staff, a variety of cakes and other snacks and small meals available.
It's nice just to sit here with friends or just chill. After you've bought something of course.

Lots of activities here, the restaurant is small but the cakes are large. Coffee good and everything is reasonably priced. Nice comfortable seating area near the restaurant. It does close at 17.00 though and you need to check out the website for details of the activities offered. Lots of things to do for small children and toilets.
