Default Re: Museums

Local to me is the Eastney Beam Engine house, only open usually over the last weekend of the month but the website has more information, well worth a visit if steam & oil engines are your thing, they are for me!
I remember visiting the Isle of Wight Radio Museum in Arreton Manor some years ago, can't seem to find any trace of it on t'interweb though, peculiar.
If old machinery is your bag then there's the Twyford Water Works Museum, heard very good things about this but again only open at selected times, https://www.twyfordwaterworks.co.uk/
For those of us who favour two wheels with an engine there is of course the Sammy Miller collection at Fordingbridge https://sammymiller.co.uk/
There is also a small number of crafty type shops there to keep the better halves happy & a cracking good café, excellent bacon butties!
