  • Not a very large museum, but convenient to drop into whilst in town. The museum hosts a number of different and varied exhibitions throughout the year. Free entry.
  • Free.
  • Entry is free and the museum provides a general overview of the history and culture of Basingstoke.
  • This place is great. You can swing-by whilst out for a meal or shopping. On the ground floor is an exhibition area; on my visit there were some very interesting photos. On the upper floor was a social history exhibition that was very very well presented. Amongst many other things it had a kitchen containing artifacts from the 1960s and it really gave me a spooky feeling. There was also a few interesting old things that have been dug out of the ground locally including a mamouth tusk that was 20,000 years old and a roman coffin. cool.
  • The Museum has now been open 5 days after its refurbishment and the site has not been updated since. There must be lots of people who would like to see what is going to be the shown in the coming year.
