A trip to Milestones, Hampshire's living history museum in Basingstoke, brings the past to life. The museum is home to over 20,000 objects either made or used in Hampshire, and is a record of the county's social, industrial and transport history.
Visitors can literally take a trip back in time, with a walk through the late 1800s and 1900s streets equipped with shops, factories, a garage, houses, vintage vehicles, a Romany encampment and a Victorian showground - and don't miss the Baverstoke Arms working pub!
The museum is suitable for all ages, with plenty to keep the whole family occupied. Younger visitors can explore the museum's specially created Post Office and explore the museum through a range of I-Spy trails. Older visitors can enjoy a trip to the Gramophone shop – and hear favourite tunes from years gone by.
Milestones has been purpose built to give best access to all visitors and has plenty of free parking on-site. Why not visit the café or Edwardian pub or browse in the fully stocked gift shop?
There’s always something new to see and do at the museum. Watch out for the changing events and exhibitions programme which is listed on our website, www.hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk/milestones-museum

- Lots to do and very interactive. Even a working old pub and pop up cafe in areas.
Buck, 2017 - 5 stars
- Brilliant! Small queue @ half term to get in but staff really good. Cafe excellent good value freshly prepared food. I recommend a visit.
Terry, 2017 - 5 stars
- Had lots of fun with my friends little one, he's only 3 but loves cars and there were tonnes of old buses, cars, motorbikes etc to look at. Plus the lego and duplo building area was a massive hit.
Alyx, 2017 - 5 stars
- We enjoy visiting with the kids. There's plenty to see and is great for when the weather isn't too good as it's all indoors.
