Attraction Information

Museum of the Iron Age

The museum tells the story of Danebury hill fort which lies to the south west of Andover and can also be visited. The hill fort was excavated by Professor Barry Cunliffe between 1969 and 1988 and is one of the best studied sites of the British Iron Age.

The museum uses real objects from Danebury alongside life size models, reconstructions and dioramas to bring the Iron Age to life. Stand alongside the fortified ramparts and imagine eating dinner around the cooking cauldron inside the roundhouse room.

At the museum there is also a gift shop and coffee shop. Danebury Iron Age hill fort itself can be found north west of Stockbridge and close to Nether Wallop and is open daily with free entry.
