The Westgate museum of Winchester showcases the Tudor and Stuart past of the city. This building has been refurbished lately and offers an insight into the past with its range of collection. Here, the visitors can see the walls covered in prisoners' graffiti as it served as a prison for nearly 150 years. Of special interest is its Tudor ceiling that has been imported from Winchester College. This attraction will be of much interest for the children as they can try on a suit of armor or make an authentic brass. There are armors and weapons on display, as well as household objects, and a painted ceiling created for the marriage of Mary I to Philip of Spain in 1554.
