Littlehampton in Lockdown: Archive Project

2020 and 2021 has been a year for the history books and Littlehampton Museum needs your help to record the Town’s response to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

The Museum plans to build an archive of documents, photographs and artwork that show how Littlehampton responded to life during the COVID-19 lockdown. Residents have the opportunity to submit an item into the archive which will then form part of the permanent collection within the Museum.

Exhibition: Golden Summers

Take a trip back to the golden age of seaside holidays this summer with our brand-new exhibition ‘Littlehampton’s Golden Summers’. In this fun, interactive display full of glorious archive photographs and memorabilia, we will be looking at just what it was that made Littlehampton the place to be 100 years ago.

Our Collections

Littlehampton Museum's mission is to make the local communities' collections as accessible as possible. As the collections contain almost 30,000 objects, it is impossible to display them all within the museum. In addition to traditional access through displays, exhibitions and talks, we are embracing digital platforms.
