Milestones Museum

About

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 that were either made or used in Hampshire, and is a record of the county's social, industrial and transport history.

Enthusiasts will enjoy the collection of beautifully restored vintage vehicles, while if you prefer shopping you’ll be able to discover what shops used to be like before chain stores took over. You’ll probably recognise some of the things that were sold, while others might leave you scratching your head about what they were actually for.

Buy an old penny and a ration coupon at reception and spend it in the 1940s sweet shop, or pop into Milestones’ very own working pub, the Baverstock Arms which opens at lunchtimes to serve teas, coffees, soft drinks and Gales ales. The pub is named after Alton-born James Baverstock, who was one of the first people to use science to help improve the quality of ale.

The museum is suitable for all ages, with plenty to keep the whole family occupied. Younger visitors can explore the museum's specially created Play Space 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.

Special events take place throughout the year, and the museum has been purpose built to give best access to all visitors with plenty of free parking on-site. Why not visit the café or browse the gift shop while you’re there!

Pay once, visit all year! With your ticket you can return to Milestones as many times as you like for a whole year (excludes some special events which may have an extra charge). Save 10% when you book online.
