Horsham Museum is widely recognised to be one of the
best local museums in the country.
Housed in a beautifully preserved 16th century
merchant's house and walled garden, in the historic
tree-lined Causeway, it features a wide selection of
local history and rural crafts, as well as a
comprehensive collection on the life & works of
locally born poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. The
Museum is also home to the world famous dinosaur
bones of the Rudgwick "Polacanthus".
In 2004 Horsham
Museum opened a new library resource, where you can
browse local history books at your leisure, as well
as "The Pod" - a new computer facility allowing you
to look up individual details on many items within
the Museum's collection.
The Museum features a regular programme of changing
exhibitions, both in the main gallery and in the
Arts and Crafts exhibition space, where items are
often available for sale.
Mon to Sat (ex. bank hols) 10 am - 5 pm
