Welcome to Petersfield Museum and step back into 10,000 years of history...

"This is a museum as modern as tomorrow and yet has a lot of time for yesterday. It brings our yesterdays alive in the most extraordinary way." Gyles Brandreth

Take a journey through the history of Petersfield and enjoy a day out with something for everyone. Located in the centre of this historic market town, take a step back into its 10,000 years of history through a variety of interactives and fascinating objects. With so many outstanding exhibitions, events and our delightful Courtyard Cafe, there is always a reason to visit us.

Petersfield Museum is an independent charity that does not receive regular government or local authority funding. We therefore depend heavily upon the support of visitors who pay admission, to help with the on-going running costs of the Museum.
