We welcome school groups and offer a range of history and STEM curriculum-based educational programmes for different ages and abilities, including the new LEGO® Mindstorms™ EV3 for Key Stages 2 and 3.

The wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority. Following government guidance issued on 16 March regarding minimising the spread of coronavirus, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Milestones Museum to the public from 18 March. The current plan is that it will not re-open until April 5 at the earliest, this will be under weekly review. Thank you for your patience and we apologise for any disappointment that this may cause.

All school bookings from 18 March to 31 May have been postponed at no charge, and all affected schools contacted. Please contact us at milestones.schools@hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk to re-arrange your school visit when you are ready to do so. Please use this email address for all correspondence until further notice, as learning staff are not currently at the museum to respond to telephone calls.

School bookings and visits after May half term

We are still taking school bookings as usual for visits after May half term. Schools are welcome to book a visit for that time and monitor government advice. Should cancellation by either the school or Milestones become necessary nearer the time due to government advice, there will be no charge to cancel or postpone your visit at short notice.

Best wishes, Milestones Learning team

Please watch this short video which shows you what to expect, what you will see, and what to do on arrival at Milestones.
