In Gosport town centre you’ll find The Discovery Centre, which is open till 7pm on weekday evenings. There is a surprising range of things to see at the Centre, including art exhibitions, events, and special activities for children and families. The Discovery Centre museum tells the history of Gosport and is well worth a visit, whilst those interested in fossils will enjoy the Geology Gallery. Why not also visit the family friendly exhibition on the mezzanine floor of Gosport Discovery Centre. Located just off the Town Centre High Street, exhibitions use pictures, objects and interactives to tell the stories of Gosport’s people.

Well worth a visit to either use the library facilities or the cafe. Some of the younger staff not so knowlegable ,but overall good service. We will use again.

"Love thy Denim" is on show at the Gallery building (diagonally opposite the main entrance and round the corner - look for the sandwich board). Only one room but well worth a look. The history of predominantly blue workware is presented but more post 1960s...More

I first visited the centre for a world war 1 exhibition. I have since discovered that they have a vibrant programme of fascinating local lectures and exhibition. Is well worth a visit. Staff are chatty and friendly and it is centrally located
