About

It also houses Horsham's Tourist Information Centre. Exhibitions: The Museum exhibits a wide ranging selection of local history and rural crafts and houses a comprehensive collection on the life and works of locally born poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley.

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. Specialist Access: Horsham Museum boasts an extensive 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
