Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We popped in on a rainy morning and were really happy with everything we found. Lots of interesting local history and interesting artifacts. Our highlights were the mammoth tusk, a blouse made of a ww2 map printed on silk, haunted dolls houses and the vintage fashion. The lady on reception was also very friendly.

This is a charming museum, art gallery and gift shop in the heart of Worthing, housed in an impressive building.
We only spent a leisurely 45 minutes here but an hour or so would do it if you want to take your time.

The staff were friendly and the toilets good. Displays are on two floors but there is a lift. I especially enjoyed the art gallery section and the room devoted to Pride some of which I shared with a family member. The costumes were fabulous and there was an optional guided tour relating to fashion if you wanted it. Well worth a visit for all ages.

Fascinating museum, I recently went with a friend to see The Regency Dress exhibition. Everything was so beautifully displayed and well labelled. I particularly liked the costumes displayed in the storeroom and viewed through the glass wall, it reminded me of a visit to the V&A,s Blythe House where we studied an old patchwork quilt. We enjoyed the whole museum.
We loved the display of baby shoes but would have liked to learn a little bit about their history.
A super museum for all ages

We (3 adults a five and four year old) had a wonderful visit to this well planned and thoughtful museum. Lovely costume exhibition and artefacts from the ages. Great little teddy bear and toy exhibition. Everything is beautifully designed and engaging for the children. There is a little shady garden and a very reasonably priced shop. All for free - we all loved it. The staff were very friendly - we felt very welcome.

Free entry to a museum that traces the history of Worthing and also, unexpectedly, has a large collection of period costumes

If you're in Worthing, it's definitely worth a visit

The museum has free entry, and although small, seems to pack a lot in without being crammed. Some interesting art on the top floor and lots of information on local history, from early archaeological items to more recent history. The quality of the information boards was also very good. The staff were all very friendly and there was a small shop which had a few unusual items.
