  • Good museum which we visited with my elderly mother in law. Two negative points. Most of the museum exhibits especially those involving the Oates Collection are on the first floor and there is no lift for the disabled. Secondly the signage for the location of the museum for the driver passing through Selbourne is appalling. It stated it will be marked by a Brown M Sign, it is not. Hung high on a building is a small sign with writing in white on turquoise which you can hardly read stood on the pavement. Other than this we enjoyed our time there.
  • Great little museum.Plenty of interactive exhibits for children. Lovely garden walks and tea room.
