We are an organisation formed to encourage members of the public to use Eastleigh Museum, both to view the displays and use the research facilities which provide information not only about Eastleigh town but also the surrounding villages within the Borough of Eastleigh. The Museum staff are always on hand to answer questions.
Light refreshments are available if required.
