Temporary Closure until 13 October 2021
5 October 2021We regret to announce that HorsePower Museum will be closed until Wednesday 13 October 2021. This is due to a water leak in the Museum. Fortunately, the leak was caught early and has not affected the collection. However, the Museum will be closed to allow important work to take place as a result. If you are planning to visit the Museum please check the website and social media for updates. HorsePower are extremely grateful to our colleagues at the MoD, Winchester Military Museums, Hampshire Cultural Trust and the South East Museum Development team. The prompt loan of equipment and shared advice was invaluable in enabling the Museum to take immediate action to limit flooding and protect the collection.
