 Horsham Museum

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.
