Chilcomb House will be closed from midday Wednesday 24 December and will remain closed over the Christmas period until we re-open on Monday 5 January 2015.

Chilcomb House is home to the county's special collections of Archaeology, Arts, Natural Sciences and Social & Industrial History. Hundreds of thousands of objects are cared for by a team of staff who prepare many of them for displays and exhibitions at community museums, discovery centres and other venues across Hampshire.

The collections are accessible to individuals for research and in a more limited way to groups and societies, by prior appointment with a member of the collections staff. Staff based at Chilcomb work across a network of museums and historic sites across the county, some in partnership with District Councils, as well as supporting and advising many independent museums.
