  • My family come from Eastleigh and we're all employed by the railways, so if you are interested in local history, and memories of the southern railway then this place is for you. 
  • Interested in local history in Eastleigh - then visit this museum - they often have local exhibitions on - eg. all about the railway works, etc. - worth a visit - free as well. 
  • Had a perfect coffee in the museum and met some lovely people. Perfect pause place and hidden from the crowds...yet so handy! Highly recommend it
