The Milestones Museum is Hampshire’s living history museum

Milestones Museum
Inside Milestones Mueum

Milestones Museum, close to the town centre of Basingstoke, is a living museum where you and your family can explore life size streets capturing life in Victorian England through to the 1940’s. It is much more than a look see experience though, the museum really encourages young and old to participate. Buying an old penny and a ration book and visiting the old fashioned sweetie shop was  a real highlight in our visit, new experiences and old memories cleverly captured in one attraction.

It is easy to fill a day at Milestones and possible to plan a trip around one of their many events.

They are open all days except Mondays and it is worth checking out the Milestones Museum to see whether they have a special event on. Parking and access was very easy and the museum is well signposted on the approach to the town.
