Self-led visits

Our museum is an ideal site for exploring topics in History, Art and Design, English and Local History. There is no set route through the galleries, giving you the freedom to explore the topics and periods that are most relevant to your group.

Leaders of school groups should adhere to Hampshire County Council’s pupil/teacher ratio guidelines of 1 adult to 10 children.
