Friends of Horsham Museum

Horsham Museum

Founded in 1893 as Horsham Museum Society, the Friends of Horsham Museum supports the work of the Museum through fundraising, issues a quarterly full colour newsletter, runs a local history group that promotes lectures and research by members, and offers the opportunity of meeting like-minded people.

In August 2011 the Friends were successful with their application to the Heritage Lottery Fund, being awarded £45,000 to work with local community groups on the museum's poster collection.

For details of membership and an application to join, please contact the Honorary Secretary c/o Horsham Museum.
