About This Attraction
Bricks are Brilliant! This is what our visitors tell us. Have you ever wondered about the bricks that built your house? Why not come and find out more about these little marvels.
The museum is set in the last remaining steam-driven Victorian brickworks in the country. You can follow in the footsteps of the brickmakers to see how bricks were once made here by the million and experience what a Victorian factory with its huge machinery was like – full of authentic sights, sounds and smells – it’s the real thing.
There really is something for everyone, lots of hands-on activities for children of all ages. You can even have a go at making your own brick (pandemic rules permitting). Plenty of space inside if the weather is poor and well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
Once a month all the machinery is steamed up and the place hums with life again (see www.thebrickworksmuseum.org for details). There are four stationary engines, a miniature railway, and resident traction engines who all help put on a memorable event.
An inexpensive family visit, with lots of brick related activities and family trails. Enjoy free parking, coffee shop and a small gift shop.
The Brickworks Museum is based near the River Hamble with lovely riverside walks, with Manor Farm and Bursledon Windmill close by. Why not make a day of it!
