Bitterne Local History Society’s charity shop, museum and research area are all in one location.
Our Shop and Heritage Centre will be closed from 1.00 pm on 24 December and will re-open at 10.00 am on 4 January.
The Museum can be visited whenever the shop is open, Monday to Friday from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.
We hold themed exhibitions of our collected artefacts and research which change regularly.
Open Monday to Friday, 13.00 to 16.00 with a Steward available to answer your questions.
The Heritage Centre is staffed by our volunteer Stewards, so are subject to availability. We have a wealth of books, photographs, maps, street directories (dating from the 19th century onwards), newsletters of local groups (including schools and churches) and computer databases. These, together with our members’ expertise, can assist you with family or local history research.
