Horsham Museum and Art Gallery
Telephone: 01403 254959
Horsham Museum and Art Gallery offers lots of fun things for kids to do and is housed in a medieval timber framed building.
They have over 26 galleries that are filled with displays and they run an activities programme throughout the year.
The exhibitions include a cabinet of curiosities, a toy gallery, a vintage fire engine and the rather gruesome Crime and Punishment, Law and Order sections (with a gaol cell!). The kids will like the relaxed and fun lay out of all the displays and will learn some really interesting facts at the same time.
There are museum trails to follow and panel labels especially for kids can be found throughout. There are two walled gardens to explore, which also contain items from the museum’s collection such as a lead pump, the plinth of a sundial (the plate of it is modern) and two milestones that are now used as seats.
An old barn has been erected outside too and you can see a number of pieces of old agricultural machinery inside. A good place to spend at least a couple of hours and ideal territory for grandparents taking the kids out.

It may be worth checking out Horsham Museum and Art Gallery's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Horsham Museum and Art Gallery before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
