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.

We strongly recommend that teacher’s organising a visit for the first time make a planning visit to the museum. Read the Organisers Pack for details.

In order to provide the best possible experience for your students it is important that you book in advance. This enables us to:

A flash in the pan

This expression originates with the misfire of a flintlock or similar gun. The powder in the pan was supposed to ignite the main charge in the barrel. Sometimes only the powder in the pan flashed without firing the main charge.
