Horsham Museum and Art Gallery runs a popular Reminiscence loans service, tailored for care homes and carers in the district. Please note, these are not suitable for loan to schools.
How to borrow a loan box
This service is free in the Horsham District and is available from Monday to Saturday between 10am and 4pm only.
- Choose a box from the list of loan boxes.
- Telephone the Museum on 01403 254959 allowing three working days before you wish to collect your box. This is because the services is administered by volunteers. Have a second and third choice in case your first choice is not available. You will be able to return a box and borrow one at the same time.
