Children’s craft activities are now available on Wednesdays and Saturdays during school holidays, with each activity relating to an even tor person from Horsham’s history.

The Museum’s barn has now reopened, where visitors can discover more about the District’s agricultural past, as well as see antique street signs from Horsham, including the recognisable Cramps Opticians’ sign, remembered by many long-term residents of Horsham. Located in the garden, the barn itself is a museum object. It was originally located at the now demolished Hills Place, and dismantled in 1977 to later be remade within the garden at the Museum.
