We have a varied programme of exhibitions, events and activities for all the family.

Temporary Exhibitions

Churches of Rustington

From March 2023 until May 2023

This exhibition is an introduction to the Churches in Rustington. It tells their history alongside objects from the Museum Collection.

A highlight is the sections from the organ screen that was once in St Peter and St Paul Church.

This exhibition will be changing throughout May to the next one, so make sure to come along and see the organ screen and the original gates before they are put away.

Coronation and Charles III memorabilia

May 2023

A collection of past Coronation mugs on loan from Kim Leslie and other past coronation memorabilia are on display as part of the coronation celebrations for King Charles III.


In the other case, there are magazines and objects celebrating his life events such as his investiture as Prince of Wales in 1969.


If you have any objects that you would like to add to the displays, please contact the Museum.
