Horsham Museum & Art Gallery is closed whilst we are refurbishing the museum.  We are working hard behind the scenes to improve our customer offer and hope to re-open in late Summer 2021.  Until we reopen, we unfortunately cannot answer research enquiries.

We are currently undergoing a dramatic refurbishment and are looking forward to reopening later in 2021.
