Arundel Museum is more than a museum. It's an experience! The state-of-the-art museum has been designed to provide visitors to Arundel with a fascinating insight into the history of the town and its people. There's something for all the family including a children's trail and a chance to handle and learn more about some of the exhibits. They often run family events at weekends and during the school holidays and offer a wide range of guided walks around the town.

The Museum is open from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm 7 days a week including Bank Holidays.

Arundel Museum Society volunteers are able to help with queries about Arundel and its interesting history. There is also a good selection of tourist information leaflets about Arundel and the surrounding area.

Heritage Open Days: Getting to Grips with Arundel Museum

  • 12 September 2015

Arundel Museum contains a whole host of history about this fascinating town on the border of the South Downs National Park. The Museum tells the story of the town and its people, the importance of the River Arun, the Castle and local trade. Our admission charge will be waived on Saturday 12 September in celebration of Heritage Open Days.

In addition to our usual family friendly Museum experience there will be a chance to 'Get to Grips'
with our handling collection in the Jubilee Room. An opportunity to handle some 90 million year old fossils, ancient flints, special Victorian rubber horse shoes and much more will be on offer. You can have a go at guessing the use of our Mystery Object too.

Help us find the eels that have escaped the eel trap by having a go at our Eel Trail around the main gallery. Can you find Eric and his pals and answer the questions about some of our treasures in the Museum?

After all that excitement refreshments will be available. We look forward to seeing you then!
