Hampshire Community collections

Hampshire History objects with associated information which provide material evidence of everyday life and work in Hampshire, from 1500 to the present, for public use, study and display.

What do we have?

The collection consists of printed maps, pictures and photographs, military, social and domestic items, transport and technology and rural life material.

Where are they displayed?

The collection forms one of the core elements of the Milestones Museum displays. Material is also on display throughout local Community Museums in Hampshire.

How do you get to see them?

Study collections are housed at our Chilcomb House headquarters in Winchester. Research visits to view particular groups of material are encouraged. Documentation of the collection is still in progress and some collections data is already on this website.

 

Research

Researchers and specialist groups can look at the collections in store at Chilcomb House by prior appointment.
