Milestones Museum is a museum located in Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK. It is made up of a network of streets that have been recreated on those found in Victorian and 1930s Hampshire.

It was opened on 1 December 2000 by HRH Duke of Edinburgh [1][2] as a joint project between Hampshire County Council and Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Amongst typical pay for extras such as the cafe and gift shop you will find a "hidden gem" in the interactive penny (1d) arcade which recreates the atmosphere of a 1910's pier.
