Curtis Museum

About

With the rapid increase in COVID-19 infections and the resulting changes to government guidance, to help keep everyone safe Hampshire Cultural Trust museums and galleries are currently closed and will remain so until further notice. We will re-open as soon as we can and look forward to welcoming you back.

The Curtis Museum in Alton is home to one of the finest local history collections in Hampshire, exploring 100 million years of the region’s past.

Permanent exhibitions include a rare Roman enamel cup, ancient Saxon burials, hop picking and brewing, Cranford author Elizabeth Gaskell, the 1643 Battle of Alton - with a Civil War era helmet, breastplate and sword - and the notorious tale of Sweet Fanny Adams. There’s also a regular programme of events, complete with family-friendly and educational activities. 

When you have finished your trip to the Curtis Museum, why not pay a visit to our sister venue in Alton, the Allen Gallery. As well as housing one of the south's most outstanding collections of ceramics, the gallery has a welcoming café and accessible toilet facilities.
