Wheelchair access and assistance dogs
There is a wheelchair ramp at the front of the museum building, and once inside the ground floor and gardens are accessible to all.
Mobility scooters should use the side entrance to enter the museum building.
There is a disabled toilet on the ground floor.
There is no step-free access to the first floor. The main staircase is wide enough for a helper to assist any visitor with mobility difficulties, though some of the passages upstairs are narrow.
We allow assistance dogs into the museum and museum gardens. We do not allow any other dogs or pets, but are happy to supply your dog with a bowl of water outside.
Baby change and pushchairs
There is a baby change facility in our disabled toilet on the ground floor.
The ground floor of the museum can be explored with a pushchair. We are happy to store pushchairs for you while you access the upper floor of the museum.
Horsham bus station is a very short walk from Horsham Museum, less than a quarter of a mile. Horsham bus routes are run by Compassbus and Metrobus and connect Horsham with surrounding villages to the south and Crawley and Gatwick to the north.
Our 26 galleries are packed full of interesting items. Subjects range from local trades and shopfronts to fashion, pre-history and the poet Percy B. Shelley.
There's lots for children to do at the Museum, including trails to follow and our popular Children's Art Zone. Plus, check out our programme of holiday activities
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.
