Milestones is Hampshire’s Living History Museum – an exciting adventure for all those who step in to this time capsule of social history. The dedicated team of costumed interpreters guide visitors as they journey back to Hampshire’s past.
Milestones is packed full of the things that ordinary people used in the past. Those people had to go to work, wash their clothes, eat, sleep, and have fun exactly as we do today - but the things they used were sometimes very different from what we use now. Milestones gives us an idea of what it might have been like to live in the past. And our ancestors would recognise the things here because they are the actual things they used.
There's a building dedicated to Thornycroft, a local automobile manufacturer. Some of the vehicles they built are on display in a building that includes machinery from the original works.
