Attraction details
Owner description: If you have a passion for the very best in Regency and Victorian fashion, want to be inspired by artists such as Stanley Spencer, William Holman-Hunt and Philip Jackson, or are looking to discover why Worthing residents take such quiet pride in 55,000 years of their achievements, then Worthing Museum and Art Gallery is the place to visit. A variety of events throughout the year link to many of the exhibitions. The Museum Team also offer curator-led talks, object handling workshops, and educational visits (including dressing up days). The elegant Edwardian building also houses a shop, has disabled access and toilets and free entry. Opening hours: Tues - Sat 10am - 5pm

A small museum, but a good selection of displays that I didn't expect from somewhere as small as Worthing. Helpful woman in the shop. No cafe, but there is a nice one next door in St Paul's.

Exhibits include huge collection of vintage clothing. Also collection of toys. Local history and changing themed displays and events.

Space limits some displays but major expansion plans announced earlier this year.

I've been in here a couple of times now and enjoyed it on both occasions. It's definitely worth a visit. It's also quite nice that it's free to enter.

My daughter has been asking to go here for a while, so we were nearby last Saturday and decided to go. They are holding a special exhibition of historic women’s fashion called the Costume Trail which leads to locations in and around Worthing which my daughter is particularly interested in, but there is a wealth of information on Worthing’s history as you might expect. we all found it very interesting and will be returning as we didn’t have enough time to see all the exhibits in one visit. PS: Don’t forget to leave a donation!

Some fantastic exhibits here - loved seeing all the beautiful dresses and learning about the history of the area. Even some Tank Girl bits to see. Wasn't so keen on the current painting exhibit but I'm sure others liked it. Lots of nice other art though. Kids enjoyed the mouse trail.
