We had coffee and cake at the little restaurant within the museum. The pieces of cake we had wasn't good. Rather hard and dry. And for what we received was rather expensive. Unless things change, we won;t return. Staff slightly stand offish.

Not much to offer in this dreary litter-filled town hanging off the edge of Portsmouth- stopped in to have a look and there was a dreary exhibition of some local paintings- apparently the hapless council want to knock down two good theatres to appease developers and line their own pockets and keep this place! Welcome to Tory Fareham!

Obsolutely brilliant but go down to bottom of Market car park first and cross over to rthe Quay, take a picture with mobile from the Quay looking at the railway arches then go into museum and look at model and pictures and see just how fareham has changed.

Nice museum and a lovely little cafe also. Dropped in as a sentimental journey for my wife as she was born in fareham. Enjoyed the museum and the cafe was very welcoming.

A lovely building seemingly often walked past. Once inside a museum of local history, a small and friendly gift shop and a quaint Cafe, not heaving like others on the High Street. An ideal visit for a few minutes quiet-step back in time and also learn about the terrible conditions and treatment in the local workhouse. Worth a visit.

A beautiful building crammed full of fascinating historical data about Fareham. If you ever wondered who Henry Cort was, or why the town was once famous for chimney pots, the answers lie therein. There are also sad tales being told there. No matter how long you may have lived in Fareham, you won't truly know the town until you have... More

Just happened to be walking past with my son (aged 9) whilst shopping and he asked to go in because he could see a dinosaur in the garden. It was a lovely experience, beautifully presented information, very clean, lovely café, pretty garden and free to go in! It's not very big but kept us occupied for about 1.5 hours. The... More

Have visited with my 3 & 6 year old grandchildren and found this museum ideal for them. Just enough to keep their interest. During August on a Friday morning there is a craft workshop for the children and my 6 year old grandson really enjoyed this, A small charge for use of materials was very fair. On the first floor...

Fantastic opportunity to look at the history of the area and learn more about the development of the town from market town to thriving community.
