Literary delights at Horsham Museum

Edition: March 2024

Visit Horsham Museum & Art Gallery to discover historic artefacts, beautiful works of art and exciting events.

Horsham Museum Library

The Museum also features a children’s gallery with exhibits for younger visitors, trails and dressing up, as well as a tranquil walled garden cared for by our volunteer gardeners.

Library refresh

Our library will undergo a refresh this year to create a space opening on 25 May that celebrates Horsham’s literary past. As well as displays of rare texts by local authors, many of the Museum’s own publications on the District’s heritage will be available for research and study.

To celebrate the launch of the new library we will be inviting the community throughout June to take part in a readathon of ‘The Wreck of the Mary Deare’ written by Horsham author, Hammond Innes. Full details can be found on our website.


Following the success of last year’s Museum Late events, we will again be inviting you to join us at the Museum on selected evenings throughout the summer. The evening openings are a perfect opportunity to see the exhibits after hours and enjoy entertainment and refreshments in the beautiful walled garden.
