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.milestones-museum.com.
