“Very interesting, definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

I like that you start at the top of the building with the oldest period of history. As you travel down the building you move through history. When I was there in June they had a fun Lego exhibit, and children could look for Lego figures in random parts of the museum. I was only filling in time, so I must go back and spend more time, then visit the other museum at the other end of the street.

Not what I expected, to be honest it looked nothing like a prison no wonder it was free? Liked the view of Winchester on the roof!!

“Excellent value, its FREE !”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

This is a lovely building with some very interesting artifacts on display. Plus some costumes you can wear for special photos. Go to the roof and take in the view from above the High street

“Small”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Nothing really in the museum except a view from the top down the street.
Give the other museum in the city a try more to see and learn.
