Worthing Museum and Art Gallery, Worthing

(4.2/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Founded in 1908 the Museum and Lbrary building was funded by generous donations from the first Mayor of Worthing Alfred Cortis and American Philanthropist Andrew Carnegie who intended it to provide an educational heart for the town ( and so the first Curator Mrs Marion Frost would stop nagging him for the money).

Permanent displays include a nationally important costume collection alongside toys & childhood galleries, archaeology, geology, the natural, social and domestic history of the town and West Sussex.

The art galleries and sculpture garden offer a range of exhibitions including displays of the permanent collections of fine and decorative art, alongside changing work by celebrated contemporary artists where artworks are offered for sale, and exhibitions by community artists. The gallery team also care for artwork on display at other council properties and advise on public art projects in the area.

  • A great place to while away an hour or two or pick up some different gifts. Just remember it is closed on Mondays. 
  • When I was at Primary School in Worthing, and later at Secondary school, the Museum was a regular haunt - I had a thirst for knowledge. After while, though, I felt that I was seeing identical displays...  more »
  • I enjoyed the costume exhibition but the rest of the exhibits were interesting as well and its free!

  • Great museum and art gallery featuring an increasingly diverse collection of works.
  • This is a great family day out lots of great expedition and free entry!!😄😄
  • Called at 3pm on 31st because website and telephone message said it was open and went out of way to go and it was shut. A simple message about opening hours if they were to change would have been appreciated.
  • Quite a little gem.
