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 may be closed to the public, but there is a lot going on behind the doors of Horsham Museum and Art Gallery. We are currently undergoing a dramatic refurbishment and are looking forward to reopening later in 2021 with refreshed displays and a modernised offering.

The refresh will tell new stories with rationalised and carefully curated collections, and is probably the most ambitious change undertaken in our 126-year history.

We're looking to modernise and refresh displays, introduce a digital cultural heritage offer, and improve the customer experience.
