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. The hands-on activities include a 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.
