While you're here...

Explore Horsham Town too when you come to visit. Horsham is a market town with plenty of shops, green spaces and cafes and restaurants to enjoy. The museum is on one of the oldest streets in West Sussex, the Causeway, and the town is largely pedestrianised making it very family friendly.

Discover Horsham District and Horsham Museum & Art Gallery are both part of Horsham District Council.
