A small and very well run attraction in the centre of town. Lots of items depicting the past. Railway memorabilia and maps of the area from many years ago. A contribution is all they ask. Also a small cafe for a decent cup of tea!!

My family come from Eastleigh and we're all employed by the railways, so if you are interested in local history, and memories of the southern railway then this place is for you.

Interested in local history in Eastleigh - then visit this museum - they often have local exhibitions on - eg. all about the railway works, etc. - worth a visit - free as well.
