I was a little disappointed with the museum as it looks a lot bigger from the outside. Most of it was general history including a display on World War One but not concentrating enough on local connections. As with most modern museums it is more...More

Small free museum with some local history, geological bits and pieces. You can see all of it in just half an hour so tie it in with some other activities when you're in Littlehampton.,

As a local with an interest in history I like popping in at least once a year for a fix of nostalgia. The staff are always pleasant and knowledgeable. It is a lovely and often peaceful place to spend 30-45 minutes.
