It features a variety of exhibits on local history, such as the use of Fareham red bricks in the construction of the Royal Albert Hall. It also has a small café.

The museum is housed in an 18th Century Grade II listed building[1] with formal Victorian style gardens to the rear, formerly used as the offices of Fareham Urban District from 1934 to 1976.

In 2014 ownership of the Museum was transferred to the Hampshire Cultural Trust as part of a larger transfer of museums from Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council.[2]
