Fodor's Review

This museum reflects Winchester's history from the Iron Age to the present through displays of Anglo-Saxon pottery, jewelry, and coins, agricultural tools from the Middle Ages, reconstructed Victorian shop fronts, and scale models of the city over the past 1,500 years. It's an imaginative, well-presented collection that appeals to children and adults alike. Check out the history detective quiz and costumes for kids of every period starting with the Romans. On the top floor are some well-restored Roman mosaics. Pick up an audio guide at the entrance (£2) to get the most out of the museum.
