April 2016 - A Timeline of Midhurst’s History and Heritage from the Stone Age to Today.

 

The Midhurst Museum has grown! From being probably the smallest museum in the country the Museum has expanded into additional premises within Knockhundred Market.

 

 

On Friday 1st April 2016 “Midhurst Museum Too” opened its doors to the public and contains a timeline of Midhurst’s history and heritage from the Stone Age to the present century. Collections by Noel Simpson, Dave and Tim Rudwick with contributions from other collectors and The Novium make for a fascinating and interesting journey through time.

 

Chairman of the Museum Association Peter Nightingale said: “We are delighted that after nearly four and a half years and over fourteen thousand visits to the Museum we are able to expand into new premises and set up a more permanent exhibition of local history. It is with great thanks to our collectors and sponsors that we have been able to bring more interesting stories about Midhurst and the surrounding area and we hope that many more people will visit us as well as our loyal regulars. We shall retain the existing Museum and continue to change the display there each month. Please do come and see us in Knockhundred Market soon.”

 

We have introduced a children's workbook for Museum Too which is available free of charge on request at the museum.
