It's manned by enthusiastic volunteers who are very knowledgeable. It was half term and coming up for Halowe'en when I visited and they had catered for mums and children with a quiz which encouraged them to look carefully at the displays.

We visited this small museum as it was near our hotel. A great view into Bognor Regis past. Even working models e.g a cobbler.

Not impressed by modern Bognor Regis - but the past days must have been great judging by this wonderful museum. How to ruin a town is starkly revealed! This is one of the best local history museums of the type, and size, I have seen....More

Stopped in here on a very windy day to shelter from the weather and really enjoyed it. Very relaxed atmosphere and lots of 'stuff' to see. Free to get in too so well worth a quick visit if you're in the area.

It's a small local museum but lovely arranged with friendly staff and great atmosphere. It's near the city centre and the railway station and walking distance from esplanade so you should pop in for a visit.
