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.
