News: Digital Museum

The Museum closed its doors to the public along with much of the UK on the 17th March and our team continue to work remotely. Despite the closure there are a number of ways you can still access the Museum and its collections. 

You can explore our collections here as well as exploring some of our online exhibitions and videos via our new Digital Museum page. You can also email the team with any questions you might have about the history of Littlehampton and the Museum's collections and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Stay Home and Stay Safe.


OPEN exhibition 2020

Littlehampton's annual OPEN art exhibition is back! This year we invite everyone to create something, whether you consider yourself to be an artist or not, based on your experiences, thoughts or feelings about these strange and challenging times we find ourselves in.

Collections Documentation Project

The Museum Team are currently undertaking a large project to fully inventory and digitise its collection which allows us to share more of our collection both online and in the Museum. You can read more about this incredible project on our Blog or you can go and explore our collections here.

You can also still contact us via email for more information about the project or visit the get involved page to find out how you can contribute.


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.
