Horsham Museum & Art Gallery is closed. Despite the Government’s announcement of revised social-distancing guidelines, we will remain closed whilst plans are put in place to allow us to re-open the museum safely and with an improved customer experience.

Learning and outreach

Bring history to life with inspiring stories, fun facts and unusual objects. Get up close to interesting artefacts on school workshops, borrow a Memory Box to talk about with a loved one or group, or start your own research project to explore a topic you're passionate about.
