How can we have reviews on Westbury manor museum when it was closed between February and July 21st? Most of the reviews were during the museums closure for refurbishment so how was this?

What a find on the high street in Fareham, this recently updated museum, has a very welcoming café offering light snacks and drinks. The exhibits are fascinating and give a great insight in to the history of the town and area. Definitely worth a visit.

Interesting Egyptian exhibition which includes lots of interactive things for children. Also a very interesting exhibition on the local area including Portchester, Titchfield and Fareham which is steeped in history. The museum has recently been revamped including the shop and cafe. Well worth a visit.
