Milestones Museum

WANDER THROUGH MILESTONES’ HISTORIC STREETS
Explore what life was like for Hampshire people in the past by wandering through Milestones’ old cobbled streets. And as you wander round you may also encounter some of our costumed characters…

Enthusiasts will enjoy our collection of beautifully restored vintage vehicles – and so will kids of all ages!

If you prefer shopping you’ll be able to discover what shops used to be like before chain stores took over. You’ll probably recognise some of the things they sold, while others might leave you scratching your head about what they were actually for.

PLAY IN OUR VINTAGE PENNY ARCADE
Head to the Penny Arcade on Milestones’ Pier for some seaside fun of yesteryear!

The kids will enjoy playing on all the old games machines including mechanical puppet shows, Test Your Strength, Grand National, table football and many more. There’s even a fortune telling machine – you’ll laugh when you find out what’s in store for you!

Our machines take old 1d penny coins so buy some from the change machines in the arcade and join in the fun.

ENJOY A PINT IN THE BAVERSTOCK ARMS
The Baverstock Arms, our small traditional pub in Jubilee Street, has a very friendly atmosphere and opens at lunchtimes to serve teas, coffees, soft drinks and Gales ales. We occasionally even have a pianist tinkling the ivories.

The pub is named after Alton-born James Baverstock who was one of the first to use science to help improve the quality of ale – we salute him!

Every purchase supports our work – cheers!
