  • Interesting. 3 floors. you start at the top at the Roman level, the next is the medieval level and the ground floor is Victorian. £5 each seemed very reasonable. They have period clothes for adults and children which is fun. They have a small shop. Gives you a good historical perspective of Winchester.
  • The museum is rather small indeed but the good thing is, it's free of charge. It's a 3-story building. On the ground floor, there's a large model showing the Winchester time in the old time. There are also a few exhibits related to Jane Austen, who spent the last eight year of her life in this town. On the second and third floor, there are exhibits, artifacts and modern day interactive computer displays that depict the history of the town in medieval time and Tudor period.
